Recently, my family and I enjoyed a week-long stay at a premier resort in Myrtle Beach South Carolina. We make an annual trip there and love every second we get to soak up the sun and sand.
This year, I enjoyed a delightful and crisp cocktail sitting by the pool. It was a coconut lime spritz, and I just knew I had to share this cocktail with you. I am not sharing the exact recipe that the resort used. I added a few tweaks of my own, but it is just as delicious and refreshing.
Positively perfect for relaxing and soaking up August's intense sunshine. And, not overly sweet, which I adore.
If you prefer a sweeter cocktail, feel free to add a tablespoon or so of coconut creme or simple syrup. Either will sweeten the cocktail right up for you.
Similarly, if you don't have fresh limes on hand, you can substitute sweetened lime juice, and it will add sweetness as well as lime flavor. Personally, fresh lime juice makes a more refreshing cocktail in my opinion. I'm a big advocate of using what you have on hand though. So, if your cocktail cabinet has sweetened lime juice, reach for it!
