This week's recipe is from the fabulous Hotel Eldorado in Kelowna, BC. I used to travel a lot for work, and the 'El was my absolute favourite place to stay while in Kelowna. The rooms there are cozy and charming, the staff are wonderful and the food & drinks fabulous. I highly recommend this lakeside hotel.
Anyway, during one of my visits to the 'El, I happened to need a GSD and stumbled upon the Coconut Cream Soda. It's a great warm weather drink and reminds me of far off tropical places.

1 shot Malibu Rum
8 ounces Cream Soda (pink)
Fill a high ball glass half full with lime slush. For the lime slush, you can either purchase through slush machines at 7/Eleven or through this Rachel Ray recipe. The key to the lime slush is that it is more tart than sweet because the cream soda and Malibu will add a lot of sweetness already.
Pour in the rum and enough cream soda to fill the glass. Stir slightly and enjoy!

Just more neon pink from the cream soda.
