This is a drink that I absolutely love. As in love, Love, LOVE!!! My husband and I first tried it at the Tommy Bahama restaurant here in Houston. The kind bartender there let us know that pretty much all of The Tommy Bahama signature drinks were available for download online. So we printed the entire collection out and proceeded to sample them all. If you are a fan of tropical, rum-based libations, I encourage you to do the same. They are all fantastic, although this one remains my favorite. It's a great pick-me-up when I'm feeling down, yet it's a perfect celebratory drink, as well. Just be careful, as it's pretty strong and will sneak up on you in a heartbeat! Plan to sit a spell, kick back, and relax. We all deserve to do that every once in a while...
