Rum Coco

During our last day on the beaches of Paradise Island in the Bahamas, we finally tracked down the elusive islander roaming the white sands selling coconut drinks--more to the point, drinks in coconuts. Now, there is little else I like more than a drink in a coconut, except perhaps a drink in a pineapple. When I finally caught up with the man, I asked him about his concoctions and below is roughly what he told me, in his particular cadence.

Rum Coco
Serves 1
Hack off the top of a coconut with a machete. Add ice to the coconut milk, some milk, and as much rum as you like. Et voila, behold the Rum Coco!

The rest is easy: stick in a straw, lie back on a lounging chair, gaze out at the ocean and try counting the endless shades of blue dancing on the Caribbean.
