Recipe by Cyrus Keyhari from "A Denim & Cocktail Guru's Mexican Fiesta" F&W Magazine, 01/2008 edition. A fantastic dessert drink, this creamy cocktail is named after the late timbale-banging band leader Tito Puente, who popularized Latin music around the world. Cyrus Keyhari uses aged Dominican rum to give depth to what he calls "a grown-up Orange Julius." Vegetarian and fast.
