The Story Behind The Mai Mojito Colada

Running up to Halloween this year, I’ve already treated myself to one too many Halloween inspired cocktails, so now I find myself dreaming of somewhere tropical where I can just lay back and relax.

Today’s cocktail is a combination of my three favorite tropical rum cocktails; the Mai Tai, the Mojito and the Piña Colada as I couldn’t decide on which I wanted more. I’m using rum as the primary spirit for my concoction but from each of the cocktails I have taken the most pronounced flavor in order to build a cocktail that makes me think of a Creamsicle and tastes like I am laying in a hammock on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean.
