CocoonThis month´s Mixology Monday theme Coconuts proposed by Rated R Cocktails  comes just right because for some time already I have had the idea to look for a proper use for my coconut rum.

4cl Coconut Rum (Koko Kanu preferred), 2cl Golden Rum, 1.5cl Maraschino Liqueur, 1cl Falernum (Bitter Truth Golden Falernum Liqueur preferred), 3cl Lime Juice (Juice of 1 Lime), garnish: Brandied Cherry
