Spiked Tropical Colada

I'm always super excited when my drink recipes turn out awesome on the first try. Usually I have to add a bit more of the hard stuff, but this time was good. As you may know from previous drink posts, I'm a coconut-aholic when it comes to mixed drinks. I might also be a little heavy handed with the bottle at times. But hey, I figure if I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna do it right. Besides, you can always tweak any drink recipe to suit your own specific tastes when it comes to alcohol and how much you use. This one is perfect for me though. Just perfect. Not too sweet, not too coconut-ty (is there such a thing?) and not too strong. Just right for a Friday night when you've been working too hard all day and need a little break.

And yes, I'm using my stylish Chicago Bears glass because, well, it's Friday night and I've been working too hard all day. I needed a big glass.
