Coconut Lemon Sour recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Several weeks ago, I was out with some friends and tried a Coconut Lemon Sour at PF Chang’s. I absolutely loved that drink and I was determined to recreate it at home. We chatted with the bartender a while, in an attempt to figure out the exact amounts. Light and crisp, just sweet enough for me and still a bit tart from the lemon, I’ll be making this all summer long. 

Without the hassle of going out or the crazy expense of a mixed drink at a restaurant, this is my answer to summertime thirst. I’ve made this for several people now and my sister insisted I post it here for her. So, here you have my favorite drink!

I make a non-alcoholic version for my kids. (Just skip the vodka!) They loved having a fun coconut drink (my middle son declared it “ten thumbs up”) and they thought it was a very exciting treat!

7/10/13 – Edited to add: This has become the most requested drink I make for friends and family. It is still my personal favorite.

How To Make Simple Syrup

Combine ½ cup water and ½ cup white sugar in a jar and shake until the sugar is dissolved. This will keep in the refrigerator until you need it again. It will be much thinner than traditional simple syrup and will mix smoothly into the drinks.

Coconut Lemon Sour

    Also had this drink at PF Changs and absolutely love it! Perfect summer drink and we enjoy it in our hottub 🙂 We make them with SKYY coconut vodka and a little less simple syrup. Fresh squeezed lemon is a must
