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

Lime In The Coconut45 ml (1.5 oz) Coruba coconut rum

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!
