Calico Sunrise

You didn’t think I was going to leave out my favorite rum on Thirsty Thursdays, did you???

Calico Sunrise Cocktail

My favorite liquor is rum; & my favorite rum is Pusser’s Rum… not that I drink a whole lot of liquor.  Actually I think a little too much fun has been had coming up with these drinks for Thursdays… I really look forward to it!  :-)

Why did I name this drink “Calico Sunrise“?  Because the colors of it remind me of the sunrise over the creek that I live on… yes, it’s called Calico Creek.  I did my darndest to get a picture of the sunrise this morning & guess what?  It was just as hazy & cloudy as could be.  The one time I am prepared with all my camera gear & tripod at the freakin’ crack of dawn.  Oh well, maybe I’ll get it another morning {sigh}.

This recipe has coconut juice in it that you buy in a can.  I found it in the juice section of my local grocery store… or you could always buy your own coconut & really do it up!

Calico Sunrise Cocktail

What I enjoyed about this cocktail is that it was sweet and little tart, and well, just different.  A nice change from the typical fruity rum cocktail.

You’ll need your favorite rum, pineapple juice, coconut juice, amaretto & grenadine.  Shake all the ingredients except the grenadine in a shaker with ice.  Pour into a glass, then add a little grenadine on top to give it the “sunrise” look & add some sweet love. Sip, enjoy & repeat :-) .
