KILLER Coconut Coolers

You will need:

  • Coconut
  • 1 oz can of Cream of Coconut
  • 1.5 oz rum
  • 1/4 cup Coconut milk (from the coconut you will soon hack in half)
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice

Wielding a hatchet or cleaver to create the perfect drink cups for your Hawaiian murder mystery party just seems apt, doesn’t it?

To create the perfect drink vessel for your Hawaiian luau party, you can either cut the top off the coconut (the part with the eyes) or cut it in the middle, thereby creating two shallow vessels from each coconut.

Place the coconut on its side, so the eyes of the coconut are facing sideways. Make an initial strike to set your target. This strike should make enough of a slice to allow you to drain the milk from the coconut to save for drink ingredients.

Once you have drained out all of the milk and set it aside, it’s time to crack you some coconut. Using that initial strike area, this time give it an almighty whack. You may need more than one whack, so this is a great time to expel any pre-party stress, especially if anyone on your guest list has been driving you mad.

With your coconut ready to receive, time to blend baby blend. Add 1/4 cup of coconut milk, 1/2 cup ice, 1 can of cream of coconut and rum. Blend and then pour into coconut shells. Top with a tiny, colourful umbrella and/or a fresh hibiscus flower and a straw.

Serve with a great murder plot, like A Hawaiian Homicide murder mystery party and give your guests a party, and a drink, they will never forget!
