READY IN: 10mins

This is from Southern Living--it sounds really great, and I can't wait to try it. They recommend using "warm" ice. They suggest letting the ice sit out for about 30 minutes before using,it should be wet to the touch without sticking to your fingers. Slightly melted ice blends a better drink, so they say.

Top Review by Boomette

It's more like a smoothie. Cause it doesn't taste vodka. Maybe add more or omit it. I find it too sweet. I might consider omiting the cream of coconut. The taste is great, a great mix of fruits.
