All the above cocktails are delicious and perfect for cooling off when temperatures sore. However, must admit that my favorite of the four Caribbean rum cocktails is the Chilli & Coconut Mojito. The mix of Westerhall — Grenadian rum, lime, Coco Lopez, chili syrup, mint leaves and crushed ice was simply delicious and oh so refreshing. So definitely will be making time and time again!
