You are going to LOVE this Dirty Coke Recipe! Have you ever heard of a Dirty Coke? I have seen quite a bit of buzz around the net with Dirty Diet Coke and Dirty Dr. Peppers. I figured it was time that I give one of these “dirty” drinks a try. So simple but so tasty. How have I enjoyed Coke as much as I have before giving this Dirty Coke Recipe a try? Yum! Yum! Coke, lime and coconut. I never would have guessed that these three ingredients would blend so well together.
Dirty Coke Recipe
During the summer months I CRAVE refreshing drinks. If you read my blog regularly you have probably noticed. This Dirty Coke was totally refreshing. As I sipped on my Dirty Coke I closed my eyes and pictured myself on a beach (I really need a vacation, ha ha). This drink really blasted me with refreshment.
The ingredients for this Dirty Coke Recipe are quite simple. Coca-Cola (you could use diet soda too), half and half or other creamer, sugar and coconut. I found my imitation coconut at Remke but you could also order in some Torani Coconut Syrup from Amazon too!
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Water
2 tsp Coconut Flavor
12 oz Coca-Cola
2 tbsp Coconut Syrup
2 tbsp Half & Half or Heavy Cream
If you can’t find Coconut Syrup you can make your own.
Add 1 cup water and 1 cup Sugar to a pan and bring to a boil stirring occasionally. Allow to boil for 3-5 minutes.
Remove from heat and add coconut flavor.
Allow to cool.
cut lime into quarter lime wedges.
In a large glass (approx 24 oz) fill half way with ice.
Add coconut syrup and squeeze 2 lime wedges over ice.
Toss squeezed limes into glass.
Add 1-2 tablespoons of half & half or cream and serve. Note that lime juice will tend to try and curdle the cream.
