Frozen Coco Loco

Top this drink with a paper umbrella and you’ll be transported on an instant vacation.

What to buy: Cream of coconut is a thick mixture of coconut and sugar typically used in tropical drinks like Piña Coladas and can be found next to the drink mixes at your local supermarket.

Maraschino liqueur is a relatively dry liqueur with a subtle bitter-almond flavor; it can be found at any well-stocked liquor store.

Game plan: You’ll need an ice cream maker for this recipe, so be sure to get the bowl of the maker in the freezer and fully frozen before you start.
