FI Contest Winner, Blackstrap Betty

And now, the winner of the Forbidden Island Cocktail Contest, Blackstrap Betty, by TikiWahine!  This drink is on the specials menu at Forbidden Island from now through November!  Cheers to the champion!  This captivating blend of the ultra-smooth Cruzan Single Barrel, with just a dash of Blackstrap makes this a surefire second order.  The Pineapple take the brunt of the flavor, with the rest of the ingredients making the tart, texture, and tasty aspects of the drink.  Well done!

Blackstrap Betty

Are we talkin’ Trader Vic’s “Koko Creme” syrup? I’d like to find a way around using that…

Should be Coco Lopez. Never use Koko Kreme unless you want to die young.

Coco Lopez is the way to go storebought wise.

If you’re interested in making your own, I’ve got Instruction on making coconut cream, though Coco Lopez is just fine, and doesn’t take several hours of effort.

I used Koko Kreme once, and my Rum Balls are still recovering :)
