Arrgh! Pirate Grog Coconut-Lime Rum Cake

This is a perfect dessert to serve any time of the year but especially during the annual invasion of pirates in Tampa during the Gasparilla celebration! The first rum cocktail was invented in 1740 when Admiral Edward Vernon of the British Royal Navy began dosing sailors’ daily toddy with lime juice to water it down to keep them from getting too drunk and to make it more palatable. The lime juice inadvertently prevented scurvy in the process. The British sailors became known as limeys, and Vernon’s nickname, Old Grogram (for his coarse cloth coat), gave the concoction its name—grog. CAKE: 1 yellow cake mix 4 eggs 1/3 c. Persian Lime or Blood Orange Olive Oil 1/2 c. dark rum 1 pkg. instant v
