Very refreshing on a hot day, and I nearly always have the ingredients handy. A win all around.

YUM!!! Can't believe I've never heard of this drink before! And with a wealth of green coconuts (pipas, here in CR) in the trees surrounding the house - I can tell this will become our go-to rum drink! Thanks for posting!
