Rum • Sweet
Take Me Down to Kokomo

Morgan Zuch, the bar manager at Tampa, Florida, mainstay Datz, uses frozen fruit in lieu of ice in this sweet, sunny Daiquiri. “During the hot days of summer, I love making spiked smoothies that put a fresh, modern spin on the old classics," she says. “For this cocktail, I was inspired by the Miami Vice and wanted to create a healthier way to enjoy it at home by the pool.” Spiced rum gives this adult smoothie a rich, complex flavor while rhum agricole brings some funkiness.
