It tastes like a coconut and orange creamsicle.
The Coco Crush contains Amarula, Bianco, and coconut rum, plus a little fresh lime, syrup, and a fresh orange slice for balance. With three kinds of alcohol, this signature cocktail packs quite a punch. To be frank, it’s almost too much punch. There’s a certain incongruence between having a very juicy and sweet beverage that hits you with all the alcohol of something much boozier, like a vesper or negroni. But if this is something you enjoy, it’s worth checking out, especially with a very affordable price tag.
Coco Crush is one of a handful of signature cocktails that you can find in Tortuga, a beach-themed bar on the second floor of the Lokal Hostel building in the Makati Poblacion area. The bar itself is nice and relaxed, a good place to hang out with friends because of its beach-art vibe in the interiors, the play of light, and the fact that you can carry on a good conversation in the space. Plus, if you are with friends who just want to kick back with beer, they have that, too.
