Probably. I mean it’s so simple, surely somebody’s come up with it before, but here’s the deal. Y’all know my friend the crusty bastard, right? Well the bastard and our mutual friend LAB are quite enamored of a highball they call the Pirate Mo. It’s a long drink consisting of coconut rum (but not the one you’re thinking of), Diet Coke and the juice from half a small lime. Good, but not mind-blowingly so. This evening I took it upon myself to find a slightly more complex yet still delicious cocktail that features their coconut rum of choice, Lady Bligh (a dear $13 or so per liter). I’ve come up with the working title of…
Sunshine on My Shoulders
- 1.5oz Lady Bligh (or Malibu, if you’re feeling flush) coconut rum
- .75oz Strega liqueur
- .5oz lemon juice
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with mint or a lemon peel.
I shall try this with lime juice after my next trip to the grocery store, but as it stands, it’s a pretty decent little cocktail. Do with it what you will. I recommend making it in quantity for your next wilding!
