Sometimes you have leftover alcohol and you feel the urge to create a nice unique cocktail. Such was the case this week. Summer is here in full blast and I was feeling a little fruity! I am not usually that much into frozen drinks – brain freeze and all that, but on this day, I wanted something frozen, fruity and different. We had some leftover coconut rum from Easter and I decided to take a tour through the fridge and pantry to come up with a new drink! Another Leftover Queen classic move , but this time with a frozen cocktail drink – perfect for those steamy summer nights! This beautiful sunset colored drink is what was made. This is a great drink to surprise your guests at your next summer party or BBQ.

INGREDIENTS:

3 shots coconut rum
¼ of a fresh papaya
¼ cup dried apricots
½ cup fresh or frozen mango
¼ cup canned pineapple
1 tsp honey
1tsp cinnamon
10 ice cubes

the only thing I would have added if I had it was about ½ cup of unsweetened coconut milk – the drink was a bit too thick, but I didn’t want to cut it with water and we had no appropriate juice for this.

METHOD:

Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. Serve in margarita glasses.
