This is a lovely fruity drink and I loved the coconut without it being to heavy. I cut back on the grenadine and didn't use the optional banana. I somehow misread the recipe and mixed this in a shaker rather then blended and we really like it that way. The cream of coconut I use comes from an Asian market and isn't sweetened like most are, which we prefer as it keeps these type of drinks from becoming cloyingly sweet. What kept this from a 5th star was we found it had a bitter edge, though none of the ingredients had any bitterness on their own. DH even made a second -a great hardship :)- with light rather than dark rum, but it tasted the same. There must be something in the combining that casues it. Even so, we enjoyed it with our spicy grilled shrimp and zucchini. Thanks for sharing - made for ZWT 7 for the Food.commandos
I love the coconut flavor in this!! First time around I made as directed. I didn't love the grenadine in it for some reason. DH like it as is. For the second round we tried it without the grenadine and added accidently a little more pineapple juice. WOW that was perfect for us. You could taste the coconut more and the banana. This is a winner for us too. Made for ZWT5.
WINNER! DH liked this better than last night's cocktail, which was also perfect. The cream of coconut was heavenly and the rest was also very good. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made as "Slice of Lime Babe" of Bodacious Brickhouse Babes for ZWT5 Caribbean Region.
