Tips for the perfect Coconut Dream

If you like, you can add a few small pieces of pineapple. However, you have to be careful that the pineapple flavor does not overpower the rest of the cocktail since the drink already contains pineapple juice.

For garnishing, you can use a cocktail umbrella. You also can’t go wrong with a slice of pineapple next to it. Pineapple goes well with the Coconut Dream in terms of flavor. 

The drink is best enjoyed cold, right after preparation. It can be stored in a cool place for several days, but it loses its creamy-sweet taste after a while. The consistency becomes lumpier, which affects the flavor.

Frequently asked questions about Coconut Dream

Can you also enjoy the Coconut Dream without alcohol?

Yes, of course. You can simply leave out the Bacardi and coconut liqueur. Instead, you can add other juices such as mango or cherry juice, which also complement each other well.

Is it possible to use other types of spirits?

The coconut liqueur is an integral part of the drink, so you shouldn’t switch it out. Otherwise, you can use vodka or another rum instead of Bacardi, if you want to. As far as that goes, you have room for experimentation.

What type of glass should I use for serving?

Usually, a long drink glass is used. There is simply more space in it than there would be in a normal cocktail glass. The drink is also relatively thick, which is why it is easier to enjoy the cocktail from this type of glass.
