Lime in the Coconut
Andrew Aoun, TAPS Fish House & Brewery, Brea, CA, USA
“We really want to show people that a piña colada was not something that comes out of a can or plastic bottle. This was a slightly modified version with a lot of character that made the drink approachable but interesting. We also do it in a liquid nitrogen version…..” Andrew Aoun
15 ml (.5 oz) SelvaRey Cacao rum
22.5 ml (.75 oz) Giffard orgeat syrup
22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh lime juice
22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh pineapple juice
22.5 ml (.75 oz) heavy cream
1 lime wheel, as garnish
Grated nutmeg, as garnish
Pineapple leaves, as garnish
Shake over ice and strain into a chilled collins glass. Fill with crushed ice and add the garnishes.
gaz sez: I must admit that I paper-judged this and found it not to be of my liking, but there was something about it that made me keep going back and looking at the recipe again over and over. Eventually I decided to try the damned thing. It’s absolutely marvelous. Well done, Andrew!
