Oh yeah...this drink. One from my personal collection. It took Logan Square by storm a few summers ago the Whiz when I was running the show there.
The ladies loved it. The guys loved it. The bank loved it. The staff hated it. This drink is messy. It dirties up your entire bar. Measuring Coco Lopez in a jigger is a pain. It’s slippery and greasy. It is kind of gross but strangely delicious in the right drinks. The red Meletti and the white cream of coconut makes the drink an almost Pepto-Bismol pink that is perfect with an umbrella. If you need a break from Winter whip up one of these!
In a Boston shaker:
45 ml White Rum
15 ml Meletti 1870 Bitter
30 ml Coco Lopez Simple (see below)
20 ml Pineapple Juice
15 ml Lime Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a hurricane glass with crushed ice.
Garnish with a lime peel, an umbrella, and two straws inserted like a couple drinking a shake together.
