Toasted Coconut

     When I was introduced to the Siesta Key Toasted Coconut Rum, I fell in love with its flavor right out of the bottle neat.   I've been trying to come up with something to put it with that would be a cocktail that would showcase the rum and not bury it in other flavors.   I tried several mixes with fruit juices and other things, but they were just lacking something. 

     I took to the idea of a smoothie style of cocktail and I researched what went well with coconut and found several things that I could work with and came up with this idea.  I hope you enjoy it.
