Fresh Strawberry juice, vodka, coconut water & mint combine for this strawberry coco cosmopolitan, a fresher and healthier alternative to cocktails made with sugary syrups. This drink is perfect to share with friends, the refreshing taste of this pink drink, served in a chilled glass with a sugar rim is a sure way to impress, whilst keeping you cool on a hot summer night.

Making this cocktail brought me back to my visit to thailand last summer when we made drinks using fresh coconut water straight from young thai coconuts & enjoyed them with family and new friends meal on our last night there. It also reminded me of how cheap young coconuts are out there compared to coconut water we get in the UK; special offers are always a good time to stock up! - That said, it still works out to be about £2 for a large glass.
