any ideas are welcome.

My first thought was ginger (and then, by extension, rum), but I'd definitely order it with coconut, too!

Ginger and lime have great affinity for each other and for coconut. I can't eat chocolate but I make a coconut sorbet with ginger and lime.

"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett
