Jack Frost Cocktail Ingredients

Jack Frost Cocktail raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • ¾ cup pineapple juice
  • ⅓ cup white rum
  • ⅓ cup blue curacao liqueur
  • ⅓ cup cream of coconut, stirred well

For the Rim Garnish

  • ½ cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons clear corn syrup

PRO TIP:

Be careful not to confuse the cream of coconut with coconut milk. These are two different things. Cream of coconut is very sweet and typically used for making cocktails. Coconut milk is unsweetened and typically used in cooking and baking. These are both found in the baking aisle or Asian food section of your local grocery store.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

RUM: You can substitute coconut rum for the white rum in this easy recipe for a really tropical flavored cocktail. A clear spiced rum would also work for this cocktail.

CORN SYRUP: We found that the clear corn syrup works best for rimming your glass with the sweetened shredded coconut. Neither the cream of coconut or water worked to hold the coconut. 

How to Make This Jack Frost Cocktail Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

You could also double or triple this recipe for a party and whip up a batch in a large pitcher.

STEP ONE: To rim your glass, add to a small dish the clear corn syrup, and in a second small bowl, add the shredded sweetened coconut. Dip the rim of each glass into the bowl of clear corn syrup, then into the sweetened shredded coconut. You can gently add coconut to any missed spots on the rim of the glass. Allow the glasses to sit and dry slightly while preparing the Jack Frost cocktails.

STEP TWO: In the pitcher of a blender, add the ice cubes, pineapple juice, white rum, blue curacao, and cream of coconut.

PRO TIP:

When you open your cream of coconut, there may be a thick layer of hardened coconut fat on the top with a sugary liquid underneath. This is normal to have the layers separate like this. If it does not stir up easily, then you can transfer the contents to a microwave-safe bowl with a pour spout and heat it up for 30 seconds to 1 minute to warm it enough to stir the fats into the sugary liquid.

STEP THREE: Blend on high for 30 seconds or until your cocktail is smooth and no large chunks of ice remain.
