Tropical Treat

Tropical Treat (August 6, 2012)

2 oz roasted coconut juice
1 oz mango juice
1 1/2 oz white rum
juice of half a lime.

The juice is clear and it has fairly large chunks of coconut in it; the flavour is fairly subtle, and it made sweet music with the rum and mango. The lime keeps it from being too sweet.
