Instead of a conventional dessert to end a meal, try a sweet lime coconut milk vodka drink.

A great tip is to store coconut vodka, if you want to make a batch, in the freezer or refrigerator for maximum flavour.

Mix your drink and add one wedge of lime into a tall glass, fill the glass with ice, and pour yourself a healthy cocktail.
