Royal Tahiti Cocktail

When I said that I might throw in some tropical drinks to take me away Calgon-style, this is exactly what I envisioned.  It looks like a lava flow, but it’s made with bananas, cream of coconut, lime juice and rum.  A little bit of strawberry puree gives it some color and sweetness.  It was adapted from a recipe served at the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa, pictured below.

Wow.  I’d sure wouldn’t mind lounging by the water with one of these frosty drinks after a nice little dip or kayak session (a girl can dream, can’t she?), but until that day comes, I’ll just have to blend one of these babies up from time to time and use my imagination.


Royal Tahiti Cocktail

Yield: 1-2 servings


* 1-1/2 ounces rum
* 1/2 banana (or one small apple Banana)
* 1/4 cup cream of coconut
* 1 Tablespoon lime juice
* 2 cups ice
* 4 strawberries, pureed


Combine the rum, banana, cream of coconut, lime juice and ice in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into one or two glasses and then top with strawberry puree. Use a straw to swirl the strawberry puree through the drink. Serve immediately.
