White Rosemary Rose Coconut Cocktail

November 19, 2018 (Last Updated: November 3, 2020)

This White Rosemary Rose coconut cocktail tastes like winter white magic! With coconut milk, white rum, honey and rosewater, it’s not too sweet and not too floral. It’s delicate, dreamy and makes an elegant winter cocktail party signature.

Coconut is one of my very favorite flavors, but I find coconut cocktails are often very over-sweetened, or mostly appropriate for a tropical party.

This White Rosemary Rose, however, has a chic, snowy appeal. It’s smooth and comforting and looks so gorgeous at glittering holiday or New Years Parties!

This is my go-to signature when I want to paint the evening with a little Snow White charm.

      Why thank you! I’ve actually made batches of this cocktail ahead of time, myself. If you look in the “Servings” part of the recipe, you’ll notice you can hover over the “1” and a slider will appear. This will enable you to easily adjust the recipe for the amount of servings you want to make. If you’ve got 8 folks popping over, just pull it to 8…or higher, depending on how many cocktails you think folks would like to drink 😉
      A good technique for a batch would be to first mix your rum, coconut/almond milk, honey and Malibu in a pitcher. Then, in a cocktail shaker (or bowl), add about 5-6 sprigs of rosemary with 1/4th cup of coconut/almond milk. Give the rosemary a good muddle, then pour it into your pitcher with the other ingredients. Let the muddled rosemary sit for about a half hour, then strain the rosemary out. Simply keep your strained cocktail in the pitcher in the fridge. When ready to serve, either pour the cocktail into a shaker with ice, shake and serve, or simply pour over ice in a tumbler glass. Give each glass a spritz of rose water, and if you don’t have spray roses for garnish, a sprig of rosemary looks lovely too! Hope you enjoy it!
