Your light rum cocktail recipe.

1 1/2 oz light rum

1/2 oz unsweetened coconut milk

1/2 oz fresh lemon juice

1/2 oz simple syrup

1/2 oz pineapple juice

1/2 americano or bitter apertif

Shake the first five ingredients hard with ice; strain into a chilled martini glass; sink the americano into the glass.

For garnish: Squeeze a large disk of lemon peel and rim the glass, then float on top.

Your inspiration.

We wanted a progressive take on the classic pina colada, a little less sweet with a modern, tarter edge. Bitter, creamy, citrusy and sweet: classic crafting made more flirtatious with layering for visual and textural appeal.


  • Ten Cane Rum gives a nice balance, present without overwhelming the other flavors.
