White Shivers Cocktail (and Mocktail)

by elyn_ryn

This cocktail is super easy to make and will be a chilling twist to your Halloween gathering.  Its white color inspires the drink name and I used black sugar crystals on the rim of the glass to match the black and white tablescape.

However, you can use another color of sugar crystals for Halloween or none at all.  This drink also works well as a Frosty White Cocktail for wintertime.

During summertime, this cocktail makes a cool drink during the hot weather.

Instructions
  1. If adding sugar crystals to the rim of the glass, do it before you make the drinks. Use your finger or a small paintbrush to paint honey around the outside of the glass about 1/4 inch (6 mm) down from the rim. It should be a thin coat so it doesn't run. Pour sugar crystals into a small bowl and stick the glass top into the crystals, swirling the glass to coat.
  2. Add the rum, cream of coconut, and ice cubes to a blender and blend until the ice is like snow. This is a stiff cocktail and should not be runny. Add additional ice cubes if necessary to get the stiff consistency. After pouring the drink into a cocktail glass, add a splash of maraschino cherry juice to the top of drink for a "bloody" Halloween drink.
Recipe Notes

Add 3-4 tablespoons of coconut rum for a stronger cocktail.

*Coco Real Cream of Coconut was tested in this recipe.  It is a thick sweet mixture.  Click here to buy online.

Do not substitute coconut milk in this recipe.

This recipe also works well with an immersion blender.

To make four 8-ounce (236 milliliters) cocktails as shown in the picture, I multiplied the ingredients in the recipe by 5. This will yield approximately four 8-ounce cocktails.
