A delightfully light cocktail featuring melon liquor and coconut rum.

Caribbean water cocktail

Today’s cocktail was inspired by the new Marvel movie that came out yesterday, Civil War.

I am definitely on Team Captain America, but I’m a big fan of melon liqueur, so I had to go with a different character for this cocktail. I know what you are thinking Vision doesn’t wear a green suit in the movie. Well, that is true, but in the comic books he does wear green and I just went with that since melon liquor is green.
