Naked Ape Cocktail

Naked Ape

Martin Cate, co-author of the Smuggler’s Cove Cocktail book, is responsible for the creation of the Tiki drink known as the Naked Ape Cocktail. Both of the rums are brought together by the highlights of banana and lemon, which leave you with a taste that is lightly sweet and cinnamon-y. Give it a shot, and then report back to us with your thoughts.
