Ingredients:
1 1/2 oz. Don Papa Rum
3 tbsp. Nata de Coco (Coconut Jelly)
3 large ice cubes
Dash of Calamansi Juice

Directions: Fill glass to top with Guava Juice. It’s ideal to have a swizzle stick, one that either has a sharp end or a spoon, so that one can eat the nata de coco. Serve in a highball and add calamansi on the rim of the glass and mint leaves to serve as a garnish.
