The Coco Loco

Day one of our cruise took us to Coco Cay, Royal Caribbean’s private island. We spent the day soaking up the Bahamian sun and chasing sting rays in the beautiful blue water. With the VERY convenient All-You-Can-Drink beverage package offered by the cruise line, we happily tried out many of the tasty tropical drinks the many happily obliging bartenders served up.

Coco Cay

This is one of our favorites. I was able to find the original recipe from Oceans Potions: Royal Caribbean Cocktail Recipe Book. This post is for my good friends, Joy and Patty. They inspired the search for this recipe (and I stole Joy’s very nice photo, xoxo). Thanks for all of the fun memories, my wonderful friends!!
