Thanks for the tip BJ. I'll make note on the recipe, good advice. I love coconut, but the flavored alcohol can be sweet as you mentioned. I make this all the time in the summer without the alcohol too, and it's just as tasty!

This sounds delicious but the rum to other ingredients sound a little light. I don't like the liquor to over power the the other ingredients especially in a a blended drink but coconut rum tends to have less alcohol content anyway. perhaps 1.5 oz of rum would be a better blend.
