Cocktail du jour: The Stormy Coconut

The liquor cabinet at my moms' house is not nearly as well stocked as the one Chez C&G, so Mr. C&G had his work cut out for him over Thanksgiving weekend. Fortunately, for me anyway, she's a big fan of my Kiki de Montparnasse so her stash includes a bottle of Cîroc Coconut vodka and lots of little cans of pineapple juice.

Our Thanksgiving travel plans were delayed due to the bad weather working its way up the East Coast last week, but we made it just in time for cocktails on Thursday afternoon. After a day of ice, snow, freezing rain, and then rain I was definitely in the mood for something sunny and tropical in a cocktail glass. With no vanilla vodka in the house we came up with this Kiki alternative, and it did the trick to melt away the previous hours spent driving.

The Stormy Coconut 
2 oz coconut vodka
2 oz Grand Marnier
1/2 oz pineapple juice
1/4 oz fresh lime juice
Add all ingredients into a cocktail glass filled with ice
Stir and enjoy while booking your winter getaway to a tropical island
