10 ounces of vodka

10 ounces of dark rum

36 ounces of pineapple juice

36 ounces of coconut water

24 ounces of 7 Up

4 mangos

12 ounces of limeade*


Coconut shavings



Pour the vodka, rum, pineapple juice, limeade, and coconut water into the cooler and stir until fully blended.

Chop up the mangoes and add them to the thermos. (If you are making this the night before, allow it to rest in the refrigerator over night at this point).

Just before serving, add the coconut shavings, 7 Up, lime wedges and ice, then stir well.

*Note: I use high quality limeade to make the recipe. Avoid anything that appears bright green, as it will alter the look and flavor of your drinks.
