What are the four best coconut rum drinks every grownup should know how to make? Find the recipes here, just in time for spring entertaining.

Coconut rum drinks are delicious any time of the year. During cooler months, spicy, warm and buttery cocktails hit the spot, but for spring and summer we usually want something a bit more refreshing. Here are four of our favorite coconut rum concoctions that will be a hit at all of your spring and summer get-togethers. To accommodate children and those who don’t drink alcohol, substitute coconut water for the rum. The drinks will still taste delicious and feel festive even as mocktails.
