Make your very own dirty Diet Coke at home using cream. It makes it that much better. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
If there is something that I indulge in, it's my drinks. I'm a sucker for speciality drinks. Lime Rickeys, Dirty Diet Coke, Shirley Temples, and now a new one, Creamy Coco-Colas. You can make these using standard or Diet Coke or Pepsi, whichever floats your boat. It is delish-ish-ous!
So there are only three things you'll need to get this treat in your hand, four if you count the glass, but those are overrated! Grab your fav dark soda, coconut syrup, and some heavy cream. If you're watching your waistline you can go for the half & half, but I just go for it. I'm already to the breaking point here, so I'm going all in.
- Coconut Syrup
First, add your ice. Pebble ice is always preferred in drinks but really, it's just a personal preference on how much you want in the first place. The ice will melt, meaning your drink will eventually separate if you don't drink it fast enough. Pebble ice is nice because it won't be a huge amount of water into your soda. I also really like styrofoam cups but they aren't very pretty. Next, for a 16 oz. cup like this one, you'll want to do about 1-1 1/2 pumps of your coconut syrup then add your soda and stir. Add your cream at the very end. I added about 2 teaspoons and it was plenty. The more cream you add, it'll be on the border of a root beer float. That is also another variation of this drink you can do but without the syrup! In the pictures, I did not stir it because it gives a prettier effect. When you stir it, it will turn a light brown and be one of the best drinks EVER! I tend to think that a lot on my recipes! I hope you give this recipe a try, let me know if you did. I'd love to hear your feedback!
