Not Just Another Rum and Coke
Fine. I get it. I do it too. A lot. I look at the pretty bottles on my bar and then grab a beer.
Those bottles, they don't even complain. They just keep showing their pretty faces, making my bar look very.. bar-ish, and wait til next time.
But I'm not just mixing for myself here - today I am mixing for a friend in need. A friend who wants to try new things but keeps going back to her rum and cokes. So - why not tart up the rum and coke? Not with anything as exhausting as slicing a lime, but by using coconut rum and hey, maybe a splash of Crème de Banane. True, you do have to twist a second top, but think of the muscles you will build.
So, for my friend, awesome chica that she is, I made a California Monkey. Try it at home!
