EWW coconut! Seriously, that’s all I could think of when I drank this. I just don’t like coconut or coconut flavored things. But for the challenge at http://www.buzzfeed.com/hannahcgregg/whats-your-home-states-signature-cocktail I had to drink the Mai Tai anyway. I returned to the APL to try this concoction.
Recipe : 1 shot each of spiced rum and coconut rum, grenadine, pineapple juice, orange juice
Seriously, I just hated this drink. I drank all of it, for the sake of my blog, but it tasted awful to me.
Taste: 2 People who like coconut might score this higher. But it is my blog, my rules
Difficulty: 8 My bartender was familiar with this drink, but was used to making it a little differently.
Lushiness: 6 This drink was not that strong, despite the 3oz of booze, it was watered down by the juices
Overall Score : 5.33
