So excited to make this! I love pretty much anything tropical- tropical drinks, tropical scents (particularly coconut), tropical vacations and of course, tropical men.

Not only does this recipe seem easy but it's also inexpensive to make. Sometimes drink get a little too carried away with ingredients but this one seems just about right.

Start to Finish: 5 minutes
Serves: 1

  • ice
  • 1-1/2 ounces vodka, optional
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • splash of mango juice, more or less to taste
  • fresh mint leaves

In preparation for the Fourth of July—my favorite time of year—I’ve been experimenting with cooling drinks to help beat the heat. This Coconut Mango Cocktail is refreshing, simple and quick.

Coconut water is very hydrating, full of potassium, low in fat and calories. It’s been called “Mother Nature’s Sports Drink.” Mango is usually sweet and full of fiber, vitamin A, C and B6.  Together, these two superfoods create the perfect summer drink. Enjoy!

  1. Fill a glass with ice.
  2. Add vodka, coconut water, mango juice and stir to combine.
  3. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and enjoy!
