Dave Matthews

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This drink originated in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. There are several different variations. I added the lime juice myself for the extra zing. Very fruity to cover the taste of alcohol. The primary flavours are coconut and pineapple. Garnish with a cherry, some orange peel, or a lime wedge."

A classic cocktail in NB!!

This is such an amazing drink!! It was given to us by friends in New Brunswick and now we gladly share it with all our Albertan friends. It's so good. We place all the ingredients in our Vita Mi...

This is a nice cocktail, kinda like DMB...easy listening. I elected to use white rum because I hate coconut and I couldn't resist adding a splash of Diet 7-Up because I love bubbles. Cheers!

LOVE the Dave Matthews! It's my fave drink! Thanks for posting the recipe!

Excellent ‘tropical’ type drink that always gets rave reviews from guests. I follow the recipe and add a bit more of the juices to make it less ‘lethal’.

My favourite drink; sweet and smooth. I added an extra ounce of Cranberry juice, as well as 2 Marichino cherries + about 1 tbsp of the syrup. Absolutely delicious.

Love this drink. Just love it.

Yummy drink. I may try this as a martini next time.
