With a week of National Rum Month already on the calendar we’re continuing to bring you rummy cocktail recipes from some of our favorite Caribbean hotels. Today’s libation comes courtesy of Ocean Club Resorts, a pair family-friendly hotels smack on the sands of Grace Bay on Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

A hit during happy hour at both resorts, the Koo-Koo Cabana is an intoxicating combination of coconut rum, melon liqueur and vodka that Ocean Club says is “shaken with love.” And after a few swigs, we bet you’ll be feeling it.
