Linda's Tropical Rum Cooler

I love coconut rum! And I have made this drink with and without the pineapple as well as with and without the crushed ice. Both are equally delightful. For an addition if you like the fizz in a drink.. you can add a spritz of soda water, ginger-ale or Sprite to it as well. Either way this drink is great on a hot day or even a cold one...
