A few months ago I was in Utah for a blog conference and while I was there I went to a little cookie and drink store and discovered a delicious and tasty twist on a drink that was game changing. Being so inspired, I decided to re-create my own and give it even more of a twist! I plan to pay it forward by gifting this to a few friends of mine as well! I created a really yummy, really tasty, and perfectly cool and refreshing Dirty Coke Slushie!
I don’t drink a ton of soda, but when I do, I typically reach for a Coke. So I ran to my local WalMart to grab one of their new 20 oz special edition Share a Coke bottles. (These were at the front of my store in the coolers.) And to snagged all the other ingredients I needed while I was there too.
To create a Dirty Coke you will basically just add coconut flavoring and fresh squeezed lime to a Coke. But I made it into a slushie first and it was out-of-this-world tasty and the perfect summer treat!!
Here is how to create a:
Dirty Coke Slushie
- 20 oz. Coke
- 1/2 tsp Coconut Extract
- Freeze the Coke until partially frozen. This can take anywhere from 2-6 hours depending on your freezer, but watch it closely as you don’t want it to freeze all the way.
- Turn upside down and then right side up quickly.
- Open cap slowly.
- Pour into a glass.
- Add coconut extract.
- Add juice of 1 lime slice.
Look at how cute these are!? I love that they say “Share a Coke with a Friend.” Some say “family” and some just say “Share a Coke.” But I particularly love the ones that actually have names on them! I looked hard for the name of anyone I knew, and I happened to find my own name! So I decided to share a Coke with myself and boy it was tasty 🙂
But I picked up a few extra bottles, limes and coconut extract to ding dong ditch at a few friends houses. I even created a cute little Dirty Coke Slushie printable to go with it!
And be sure to head to WalMart on July 6, 2014 for a National Share a Coke Event! There will be a special in-store demo where you can Share a Coke with friends and family. Wouldn’t it be so fun to meet up there with a friend, grab a Coke and just enjoy the moment?! Go here to see if your store is participating.
