Gin & Coconut Water Drink – Caribbean Classic

This is classic Caribbean drink, exotic alternative to plain gin & tonic that it is not only healthier but also taste better, in my opinion.

As I’m not a big fan of gin (in any form) I only prepared this drink out of curiosity after my husband told me how they used to drink gin back home in Dominica… still spiced mojito is one of my favourite drinks.
