This week I'm getting island fever; next week I'll be in Maui, Hawaii, looking for new chocolates. Today (Day #6 of Drinking Chocolate/Chocolate Beverage Theme Week), I was inspired to search out chocolate and coconut cold drinks. I'm off caffeinated coffee; however, Starbucks Frappuccinos are now available with decaf coffee; hurray. And their new flavor just happened to be Mocha Coconut, topped with mocha syrup and toasted coconut flakes. That was lunch...

This evening was spent at Mistral Restaurant and Bar, in Redwood Shores, CA. In addition to splitting a great salmon dish, salad and spring rolls with a friend (thank you Laurie), I put in a chocolate and coconut drink request at the bar. Thank you to Tamera for whipping up a great, custom-made drink with coconut rum and dark creme de cacao over ice.
