The Decatur Gator

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by graniteangel

This is my version of a VERY popular specialty drink I made at two different places in New Orleans. Both drinks were made in restaurants on Decatur St. This is my version. Very refreshing, and not as sweet as it sounds.

It was delicious but a bit too sweet for my taste. Maybe I would reduce the amount of Malibu to 1 ounce. Thanks Angela :) Made for beverage tag.
