Rum Sherbert Cocktail.

So the other day I was in desperate need of an end of the week cocktail, but knew I didn't want to leave the comfort of my hermit shell. I desperately searched our freezer for anything I could use. There in the dark corners was a bottle of Malibu rum with coconut lliqueur and a bag of Trader Joe's pineapple chunks. I could work with this, but what was I going to use as a mixer? We had no juice of any kind in the house. Then it hit me. DUH! Rainbow sherbert. I wasn't really expecting anything fantastic with this concoction I was creating. It was certainly no fancy craft cocktail. This was a desperate mom needing a drink cocktail because taking shots at 5 pm with a 6 year old is frowned upon. Anyways, the drink turned out way better than I thought. It was creamy, sweet and left me dreaming of the beach. Think pina colada with hints of raspberry and orange.

What You Need -yields 2:

  • 4 big scoops of classic rainbow sherbert
  • 2/3 cup white rum with coconut liqueur (I used Malibu)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups frozen pineapple
  • Blender
  • Coconut to garnish

How To Do It:

1. In a blender stack your ingredients and blend until desired consistency. Add more milk if needed.
