“My point of view on the Tiki culture of 2015, a new classic based on the legendary Mai Tai and the always refreshing Pina Colada,” Alejandro Gkikopoulos.
60 ml (2 oz) Bacardi Superior
15 ml (.5 oz) Coco Lopez coconut cream
15 ml (.5 oz) Cointreau
15 ml (.5 oz) fresh lime juice
2 dashes aromatic bitters
Shake over ice and double-strain into a chilled coupette glass, rimmed with dried coconut flakes and black salt.
gaz sez: This recipe seems a little obvious since it’s a Piña Colada sans pineapple juice, with the addition of Cointreau, lime juice, and bitters, but Alejandro Gkikopoulos is the first to put this drink together, and he made a damned good job of it, too.
