Dirty Coke

The other day it was hot and I needed something that was over-the-top refreshing.  I had the urge for something sweet and fizzy.  A plain old Coke would have been the quick answer but I wanted something more.  A Dirty Coke was what I needed.

I haven't had a Dirty Coke in ages - I will not mention how long it has been.   Basically, a Dirty Coke is a Coke poured over ice with some Coconut Syrup, lime juice, and half and half. I used Monin Coconut syrup but you can use what brand you prefer.   That's it.  This beverage is ever so wonderful.  Delicious, decadent, refreshing all in one beverage.  If you want to cut the calories substitute a diet Coke for a regular Coke.

Dirty Coke

1/2 of a fresh lime - cut into wedges
2 tablespoons Coconut syrup
1 (12-ounce) can of Coke
2 tablespoons half and half

1. Fill a large glass half full of ice.
2. Squeeze the limes wedges to release their juice and add to the glass of ice.  Add the coconut syrup and lime wedges.
3. Pour in the coke and stir.  Add the half and half.  Serve.
