Caribbean Queen Cocktail

A Caribbean twist on the Moscow Mule by mixologist Moses Laboy

"I was sitting in the restaurant's office on a hot NYC July afternoon working on some invoices, when I thought to myself this requires the accompaniment of an adult beverage--and a Piña Colada would be amazing. Down to the bar I headed! Immediately I knew I didn't want to go hunting for a blender or heading out to find coconut milk, aka Coco Lopez. Via the inspiration of this classic, I created the Caribbean Queen, with all of the tropical and playful Caribbean flavors presented with a fun twist. Incorporating dark rum, fresh pineapple juice, coconut water, fresh lime juice and lemongrass over freshly cracked ice, it's just summer in a glass." - Moses Laboy
