Since I had my Poco Grande glasses out anyway, I decided to give this drink a try - I used:

1.5 oz Bacardi 8 Rum
1.5 oz Cruzan Coconut Rum
1 oz Triple Sec
Juice of one kind-of-dry lime
Trader Vic grenadine

I tasted it before adding the grenadine - coconut flavor predominates, and kind of bitter from all the lime. After the grenadine was added, the drink turned a lurid Fruit Punch red.

Actually, it's not bad - just kind of one dimensional. It's the tropical drink you get at a hotel bar or at your cousin's wedding reception. If I tried it again, I'd back off on the grenadine and leave more of the initial bitter flavor.
