Posted: August 26, 2022


This cocktail by David and Moriah Sombrio won the 2022 Hard Truth Toasted Coconut Rum cocktail contest.

Contest entries were narrowed down to a top three by a panel of Hard Truth tastemakers, then industry professionals who attended a Hard Truth brunch at Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans voted for their favorite.

This tropical treat that epitomizes the delicious escape of warm weather and oceanside sipping took the crown.
Congratulations, David and Moriah!
