Creole Spirit Cocktail

Creole Spirit Cocktail

I went to the Seychelles in the summer which included a visit to the Takamaka distillery and a rum tasting. Loved the rum, especially the coconut rum liquor they make. Next meal out I selected the first rum coco cocktail I could see on the menu Creole Spirit which turned out to be an excellent choice delicious, this is my version. It is very easy to make at home and you can adjust the relative proportions of coco rum to taste. The version we had in the Seychelles used the small sour tropical lemons, I thought a mix of lemon and lime be closer to the taste than just regular lemons. Quantities below made three glasses.
