Destination: Cocktail Rum and coconut water It doesn't have a fancy name, nor is it a fancy drink. But the rum and coconut water served chilled in a young Thai coconut at 213's Caña Rum Bar in downtown Los Angeles conjures the Caribbean with each stress-relieving sip. The drink comes with a long-handled spoon so you can scoop out the tender white coconut meat and chew on it as you drink. The result tastes a bit like alcohol-laced French toast with languid hints of slow-moving molasses and sun-soaked vanilla.
