Rum • Dry
Coconut Fizz

A Piña Colada is a lot of things—tropical, delicious, a vacation in a glass—but it is definitely not low calorie. Enter this easy Coconut Fizz. Made with white rum, good quality coconut water and egg whites, which give the drink a creamy, indulgent quality, it’s a perfect, diet-friendly island drink. Of course, you don’t have to be on a diet to enjoy it. It’s crazy-delicious even if you aren’t watching your calorie intake.

When choosing a rum, we like something straight-forward and not too funky like Denizen Aged White, Eldorado 3 Year or Bacardi Superior. For the coconut water, opt for a brand that doesn’t use any artificial sweeteners or additives like include CoAqua, Harmless Harvest and Vita Coco. If you’re vegan, swap out the egg whites for three-quarters of an ounce of aquafaba (aka chickpea water), which gets creamy and foamy when you shake it.
