DRINKS NO 4. | Tropical Rum Coco-Lada

DRINKS NO 4. | Tropical Rum Coco-Lada

I don’t care what season it is, give me a tropical cocktail and I’m set. Perhaps it’s the flavorful garnishes, usually consisting of pineapple or coconut. Maybe it’s that it reminds me of sitting on the beach, no matter what temperature it actually is outside. Or it could even be that distinct tiki feel, even if it’s not in a tiki glass.

Either way, tropical cocktails are my JAM. So, when I spotted ‘Coco-Lada’ by The Owl’s Brew, I knew exactly what I had to make. The team over at The Owl’s Brew is BRILLIANT. They’ve crafted teas specifically for cocktails. Major ‘aha!’ moment, am I right?

The tea I made this Tropical Rum Coco-Lada with is a blend of black tea, chai spices, coconut pieces, and pineapple juice. SO much yum in one bottle.
