Lime in the coconut recipe

Does anyone know how to make a frozen concoction called "The lime in the coconut"? I learned it from Norma in the tropical rain forest on STX. I made it once since we've been back but I lost the recipe. I can't seem to find it on line.
I don't have Norma's recipe but this is the one I use:
Lime In The Coconut
1 oz. Cruzan Coconut Rum
1 oz. Cruzan Citrus Rum
1 oz. Triple Sec
1 oz. Rose’s Lime Juice
4-6 oz. of Pina Colada Mix (I like Mr. & Mrs. T's)
About a 1 1/2 cups of of ice
Blend - Garnish with a lime circle and some shredded cocnut. Makes about 2
I usally make these by the blender-ful - about 2-3X the recipe.
Hope this gets you started and then you can fine tune it to make it your own.
Thanks, Margy for responding so quickly. We aren't crazy about the Ctirus rum but the rest sounds yummy. I remember using cream of coconut and the juice from several limes in it.
Kazmor - I am not a fan of Rose's lime juice so will use fresh limes whenever I have enough - I should have put that in the original post - sorry. I LOVE the Cruzan citrus rum (used to be called Junkanoo and that's when I got hooked on it) - especially mixed with Ting (grapefruit drink from Jamaica). I like Coco Lopez but sometimes find it too thick - I guess that's why I like the Mr. & Mrs. T's colada mix - creamy but not too thick - kind of a happy medium and very versatile for other "colada" or cream drinks.
I'm all for simplicity. Cruzan Coconut, a dash of Roses Lime, served on the rocks. No shaking, no stirring, no blending. But you CAN do it in the blender with ice for a more frou-frou concoction. Cheers!

Lime In Coconut
* 1.5 oz Coconut Rum
* (light or dark rum can be substituted)
* 2 oz Rose's Lime Juice
* 1 oz Coco Lopez
* 1/2 slice of lime
* Splash of Sprite (optional)
* Slice of Lime Garnish
Put all ingredients in a blender. Add 1 glass of ice. Blend till smooth. You can add a dash of Sprite or simple syrup to sweeten and/or to make blending easier if it is too thick. We get the most compliments on the Lime and Coconuts that we make with Sprite, and the lime in the blender is very important.
Thanks so much. Your recipe comes closest to what I originally had.
