Pink Bikini Cocktail

My favorite island libation is an homage to my preferred work attire: bikini, flip flops, and a good tan. The smell of the coconut rum and key lime whisper remembrances of Tropicana tanning oil, sandy feet, and the tunes of Harry Belafonte. Donning a pink bikini is optional.

Serves 2

What You Need:

  • 6 tablespoons coconut-flavored rum
  • 1 cup carbonated water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon key-lime juice
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 cup hibiscus tea or pink lemonade, chilled
  • 2 to 4 cups ice, crushed
  • Lime slices for garnish

What You Do:

  1. In a large pitcher, mix together rum, carbonated water, sugar, lime juice, cinnamon and tea or lemonade.
  2. Fill two glasses with crushed ice and pour drink. Garnish with a twist of lime.
