Tahitian Coconut Rum-tini

Time for a cocktail quickie! The last several posts have had stories to tell...and many words to tell them. Today?'s rum. It's coconut. It's lime and Tahitian vanilla. What more needs to be said? Oh yeah. CHEERS!

Tahitian Coconut Rum-tini

  • 4 ounces Mira Azul Coconut Juice - WITH gorgeous flakes of coconut suspended in the juice (got this at Wegmann's. Why oh WHY isn't there a Wegman's in Pittsburgh?!)
  • 3 ounces Don Q Crystal rum (yum rhymes with rum for a reason...just sayin')
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice 
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 drop Tahitian vanilla

In a cocktail shaker, add coconut juice, rum, lime juice, simple syrup and vanilla. Add ice 3/4 of the way up the shaker. Cap tightly, shake vigorously until the tin frosts, strain into a coupe or martini glass, garnish with a slice of lime and serve. Refreshing!

NOTE: If there are coconut flakes stuck at the bottom of the tin? Fish them out and add them to the cocktail. They are sweet and delicious and MUST be consumed!
