Can I substitute Coconut Rum in the D-skits cocktail?

Yes, if you're not a fan of coconut rum or simply out of it, you can substitute it with white rum for a more neutral flavor, or spiced rum for a bit of a kick. However, keep in mind that substituting the coconut rum will alter the tropical profile of the D-skits cocktail.
