Esther’s White Christmas Cocktail

Esther’s White Christmas Cocktail

Took a step away from the stove this holiday season and whipped up a cocktail instead. This cocktail is perfect for the holidays. I adapted this recipe from pinterest and added my own twist to it. It tastes like a lighter more festive version of Haitian Kremas. This cocktail was a hit this year and I’m sure you will enjoy.


This recipie makes a full pitcher of the cocktail enough to serve 15-20 people. Adjust the amount of tequila you add as needed.

  • 16 fl oz (2 cups ) your favorite silver tequila
  • 8 fl oz (1 cup) grand mariner
  • 2 cans of unsweetened coconut milk (be sure its not fat free or low fat 🙂 )
  • 1 can (16 fl oz) of coconut water
  • 3 fresh limes squeezed
  • 1-2tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 8-10 cinnamon sticks
  • Fresh Rosemary springs
  • 1 cup of sugar (I used splenda)

To Garnish

  • frozen cranberries
  • sliced lime
  • Cinnamon sticks


  1. First you will make the rosemary simple syrup. Add 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar into a pan on medium heat. Toss in 1 spring of rosemary. Allow the mixture to simmer for a few minutes then remove from heat. Let cool completely
  2. Add tequila, grand mariner, coconut milk, coconut water, lime juice, and cinnamon into a pitcher. Whisk the ingredients until the coconut milk and ground cinnamon is mixed in thoroughly.
  3. Add the cooled rosemary simple syrup and cinnamon sticks. (I split the cinnamon sticks in half before adding it into the mixture but that was a preference)
  4. Chill the drink for at least 1 hour. Be sure to mix when serving because the coconut milk may rise.


  • Add crushed ice and 1 lime slice into a glass cup.
  • Pour the cocktail to the rim.
  • Stick 1 rosemary stick and 1 cinnamon stick on the side into the cocktail
  • Sprinkle some ground cinnamon
  • Add a few frozen cranberries to the top
  • Enjoy!
