Knickerbocker- the perfect girly umbrella drink

I am not into strong cocktails. I like the ones that taste like juice, but take the edge off. This drink will do just that. I admit, it's a bit girly, but fellas, embrace your sensitive side and give this one a try- it's delish. The original recipe called for less pineapple juice, but I bumped up the quantity. It also called for light rum, which I substituted for key lime rum. It really gives it a nice little zing. So here's how you make it:

1 part key lime rum
1/2 part Cointreau
1 part pineapple juice
1 splash of lime juice
2 teaspoons raspberry syrup
1 lime wedge and maraschino cherry to garnish
Combine all liquid ingredients and shake vigorously with crushed ice. Add shaved ice into a tumbler and strain the cocktail into the glass. Decorate with lime wedge and cherry.
