(DOUG JESSOPDOUG JESSOP’S UTAH SUCCESS STORIES) What does a coconut, mango, pineapple, and passion fruit have to do with a disco ball? Keep watching to find out.

We’re at Dented Brick Distillery, home of the artesian well used by pioneer distiller Hugh Moon starting way back in 1853. They make a unique product called Disco Nut Coconut Rum.

Managing Partner of Dented Brick, Marc Christensen told me; “As we thought about doing this with the Pride Center and doing the disco and bringing back the 70’s as a fund raiser we found this edible glitter.”

The response to Dented Brick’s glittery coconut rum concoction was awesome,  especially at tiki bars, thus the leis from Orchid Dynasty.

Dented Brick is celebrating their success by creating more new flavors – all with real juice…nothing artificial. the original coconut. Mango. Pineapple. And whatever this is… ah, Passion Fruit.

Here’s a recipe for what Dented Brick’s mixologist, Renee’ called “Glitter Brick Spritzer”:

*1 1/2 ounces of Dented Brick Pineapple + 3 dashes of Orange Bitters + top it with Sparkling Wine or Champagne + Garnish with an Orange twist.

I did get to ask if it was “Shaken or Stirred” ,,,

Everyone has a story. I strongly feel that “stories have power”. Chances are that if you are going through something, that someone else probably has as well. The shared experiences we humans have can help each other. That my friend makes the point that stories “help us understand each other.”

You don’t have to agree with everyone, but in my opinion, if people would take more time getting to knowing more about others and where they are coming from, we just might find out that we have more similarities than differences.
