It brings me so much joy today to share with you this Jack Frost Cocktail recipe!
Jack Frost Cocktail
This has been on my bucket list of cocktails to make forever. A friend posted a picture of them on Facebook the other day and it jogged my memory to get on the ball and make ’em! NOW I see (and TASTE) what all the hype is about. OH. MY. WORD.
It was all I could do not to stick a straw in one of these and start slurping while I was photographing. They taste sweet, tropical and Christmas-y all at the same time.
Your simple ingredients are: Vodka (you can also use light rum), pineapple juice, cream of coconut, blue curacao, coconut and corn syrup for rimming the glass. You’ll also need ice and a blender. I find that dipping my glasses in a little corn syrup (or honey!) works awesome for making the coconut stick to the rim.
If you don’t want an icy cocktail, you can also make a martini out of the same ingredients. In a shaker with ice, shake the vodka or rum, pineapple juice, cream of coconut and blue curacao and strain into a martini glass.
There are so many holiday cocktails I want to make this season, but I’m SOOOOO glad I made this one early-on so that I can share with you all if you haven’t tried it yet. If you haven’t, make it a priority to put it on your holiday entertaining menu… NOW!
I always try to give proper credit for a recipe, but I can’t seem to find the true original source of the recipe (if you know it, please let me know!). This recipe was adapted from Indlulgy.com and Tipsy Bartender.
Cheers and happy mixin’! 🙂Print

The flavor is great, but mine is very blue. I was hoping for the wintergreen shade in your picture. Any suggestions? More ice? Less Blue Curacao?
Hi Kate, I’d use less blue curacao next time if you want less of a blue color (and/or more ice). I hope you enjoyed it!
Can you serve this, on the rocks??
Hi Donna, I’ve only made this recipe as written (blended with ice) so I can’t say with 100% certainty how it would turn out. I’d love to hear how it turns out if you try it!
Amy … I’m looking for an Appetizing Cocktail to serve Xmas Eve.
I have all the ingredients. I’d like to TEST it before making the Whole
recipe. Would u please tell me the “Amounts” for (1) or (2) drinks ???
I’m just dying to TRY this. Looks wicked !!!!!
Many Thanx-o-x, in advance.
Hi Marianne, this recipe yields approximately 6 cups. You can divide the ingredients in half and yield about 3 cups. I hope you enjoy it!
