This is a drink I'll try soon. Since I like rum & coke, I'm sure this one is as great. From the 501 Must-Drink Cocktails
- 3 -4 ice cubes, crushed
- 1 ounce light rum
- 1 ounce coconut rum
- 1⁄2 ounce triple sec
- chilled cola, to top off
- 1 maraschino cherry, to decorate
- Put the ice cubes into a cocktail shaker. Pour the rum, coconut rum and triple sec over the ice and shake until a frost forms.
- Strain into an old-fashioned glass and top up with chilled cola.
- Decorate with maraschino cherries impaled on a toothpick.
I'm not a big rum & coke fan (I don't like cola type sodas) but I love coconut rum & DH does like rum & coke so I chose to make this at the 4th of July BBQ & pool party with friends. I am now a rum & coke convert! I used two kinds of Malibu rum, Passion Fruit & Coconut, Triple Sec instead of the Cointreau (what I had on hand was that or Grand Marnier) and lots of cherries. This drink was very smooth. I was worried it would be too strong for me but it wasn't at all. I loved the coconut & the hint of cherry flavor. Thanks for sharing, Boomie! :) Loved this one!
Delightful! At least that's the first word that came to mind when I took my first sip of this wonderful cocktail. The coconut rum really shined through and added a tropical touch that melded quite nicely with the rum and coke. Definitely something I'll come back to time after time. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Boomette. Made for 2012 Adopt-A-Tag in the "Cooking Games With Friends" forum.
DH and I are rum and coke fans and this is a new dimension of that classic drink. We had them on Christmas Eve after "the gang" had departed at about 8:30 and they were a true pleasure. We put the fireplace channel on tv, got comfy and very much enjoyed some quiet time with this delicious drink.
