Each season I invent or reinterpret a new cocktail. Spring’s warm sunshine, wild flowers, and fresh fruits led me to taste test the  Coconut Twist…so simple, sour and sweet.

A shot or two of coconut rum
Garnish of grapefruit or tangerine slice

Fill a tumbler with ice.
Shake ice, juice, and rum.

My inspiration for this drink is from a New York (Fire Island) bartender, turned lawyer, turned novelist, Chuck Graves. His latest mystery is The Last Heir, a wine-country who-dunnit.

You can read more about the mystery writers of America and their recipes in Maralyn Hill’s Success blog under book reviews.

Cheers!
