  1. Substituted sorbe coconut juice for the coconut cream. Skipped the pineapple ring and cherry garnish. I did not really care much for the curaçao liquor flavor.

  10. This is one of my all-time favorite mixed drinks! I usually don't add the pineapple slice or cherry, since it's just me and I don't need to impress, but it's yummy nonetheless!
