If you like piña coladas, and getting caught in the snow… then you are going to love this Snow on the Beach Citrus Cocktail recipe!
Ok, so cheesy song references aside (can you blame me?) this icy update on the tropical classic is a delicious option for any winter parties or get-togethers. (It would also be fun for a grown-up option at a Frozen birthday party… or after sitting through one too many a cappella versions of “Let it Go” sung by your daughter and her friends…)
Instead of getting it’s citrus flavor from pineapple juice, this cocktail uses Blue Curaçao both for it’s blue color and for that vibrant orange flavor. Mixed with ice, rum, and coconut cream, you get any icy yet creamy winter take on a classic summer cocktail.
(And you can freeze the coconut cream in an ice cube tray for later use – I only ever use a couple tablespoons at a time, which gets expensive.)
I first shared this frosty cocktail on my friend Amanda’s site.

How to Make a Snow on the Beach Martini
Place the coconut cream, ice and alcohols in a good quality blender and mix well, until ice is a consistent and smooth texture.
Dip the edge of the martini glass about 1/4 inch into water, and then dip into a dish filled with the sugar crystals to create a sugared rim. Repeat with 4 glasses.
Pour 1/4 of the cocktail mixture into each glass and serve.
