Let's all pretend we're in Brazil, shall we? On my honeymoon there, I sipped from a straw stuck in a coconut at least once a day. I love that it's a trend that's made its way to every deli, grocery store, and bodega in New York...OK, not an actual coconut, maybe, but cartons of coconut water, simple and refreshing and evidently wonderfully good for you (as much potassium as 4 bananas!). So in the third installment of our health-inspired cocktails for January is this Coconut Cilantro Cooler, punched up with lime for an extra summery feeling in the midst of this grey wintry thing we have going on. Now you can hydrate while you imbibe!
Sip on a few of these and pretend you're in Brazil this long weekend.
