  • 1/2 Ounce pineapple gomme

For the cream of coconut

Directions

For the drink

Shake, strain over crushed ice in a tall hurricane. Garnish with cherries and grated nutmeg.  

For the cream of coconut

Crack coconuts, reserve water. Grate flesh, place in pan with equal parts coconut water and heavy cream. Let simmer for 20 minutes (do not boil), then remove from heat and let steep for 1 hour. Strain thoroughly through cheesecloth. Add sugar (2/3 volume of coconut water), pour back and forth between containers to dissolve. Bottle and label and date.  

Piña Colada Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Piña Colada Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
