Six years ago Saveur showcased the Castaway from the Lobby Bar & Lounge at California's Terranea Resort, a take on the piña colada owing its silky texture to Coco Lopéz, a creamy mixture of sugarcane and
coconut cream. I’ve added a small amount of the Paradise Blend to up the tiki ante — all told this has become one of my go to summer drinks. There are other cocktails named the Castaway & I haven’t tried them yet, but this one is a winner.
