YUMMY! I made these drinks for my BUNCO group. They were a hit! Didn't know where to purchase "Cream of Coconut" but found it in the liquor store. Used 1/2 ounce of cr. of coconut instead of full ounce (on advice from the sales lady at the liquor store). They were wonderful! Start with 1/2 ounce of cr. of coconut and work up if you want more coconut flavor. I love coconut and 1/2 was enough for me. Read More

Substituted sorbe coconut juice for the coconut cream. Skipped the pineapple ring and cherry garnish. I did not really care much for the curaçao liquor flavor. I was expecting more of a Kailua mudslide texture but instead it was more foamy or frothy. Which could due to the sorbe coconut drink that I used. Read More

This is one drink that will keep you Cool in the summer time and transport you to PARADISE! ! My Sugar Bear and I went to the Yard House after the movies. I asked the waitress for one of these and Man was it Yummy! ! The only way to make it taste better would be if I was sipping it IN Hawaii :):) Thanks AR, its a Keeper! Read More

This is one of my all-time favorite mixed drinks! I usually don't add the pineapple slice or cherry since it's just me and I don't need to impress but it's yummy nonetheless! Read More

Did not have coconut cream, or light rum, so I used coconut rum, and the drink was perfect. Just like the one I get at Moxies. Read More

This represents all things that are Hawaiian. From the beautiful color of the ocean to the magical tropical flavors. I used coconut flavored rum which gave it an added boost of coconut. No Hawaiian party should be without one! Read More

Very tasty, after making a pitcher my husband and I both decided it needed more of a punch and doubled the rum. Read More

This drink is really good. To make it slushier add 1.5 cups of crushed ice. Also really strong pineapple taste so I'd recommend using a little less creme of coconut. Read More
