  1. In a measuring cup or cocktail shaker, combine the strawberry daiquiri mix and lime juice. Stir and set aside.
  2. In a measuring cup or cocktail shaker, combine the coconut milk and coconut rum. Stir and set aside.
  3. Pour 1 ounce of the blue curaçao on a small plate. Pour the sanding sugar on a second plate. Dip the rim of a highball glass into the blue curaçao and then into the sanding sugar to rim the glass.
  4. Pour the strawberry mixture into the glass and fill the glass with crushed ice, being careful not to mess up the sugared rim. Pour the coconut milk mixture into the glass on top of the strawberry mixture. Top with the remaining ounce blue curaçao. Add a straw and serve.
