Is there anything better than being in Florida when the weather is frightful up north? Being in Florida with a Snow On The Beach Martini works for me!
Living in Florida for close to 30 years now, I’ve adjusted to not having snow at Christmas. But in my defense, the only time I liked snow in Ohio was on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
It could away after that. Unfortunately for me, the snow often did not go away until April. And that is how I came to live in Florida. Well not really but it sounded good.
As we move closer to Christmas this year, quite a bit of the USA is getting slammed with snow. In Florida, we have had a few pretty cold days as well.

So this week’s beach cocktail is Snow On The Beach Martini. The first time I had one, it was called a snowflake martini.
I have heard it called the Jack Frost Cocktail as well. Just depends on where you are when you enjoy one. Jack Frost cocktail is often frozen, so you have that as an option as well.
It is quite easy to make and delicious! The easy-to-follow recipe is below. Let me know what you think!
Snow On The Beach Martina also called Snowflake Martini
- 2.25 ounces Rum (I prefer white rum) You can also swap out for Vodka
- 0.75 ounces Blue Curaçao
- 3 ounces pineapple juice
- 2 tablespoons Cream of Coconut
- Honey and Coconut Flakes
Honestly? The part that takes the longest is getting the coconut flakes on the rim of the glass. What I do is put the rim into a saucer with natural honey.
Then I press the rim of the glass into the coconut flakes followed by more pressing with my fingers. You can use any simple syrup but after trial and error, I found the honey worked the best for me.
Pour the rest of the ingredients into a shaker cup with scoop or cup of ice. Shake and serve in the martini glass, tumbler or hurricane glass rimmed with the coconut flakes.
Not only festive, the color! Takes you instantly on a Caribbean beach vacation. And it’s delicious too.
