With heat at an all-time high and those midsummer vacations pushed further into our pasts, there’s nothing quite like a beach getaway to revitalize the spirits with just one more sweet month of summer left to go. So, when a cocktail straight from Rosewood Baha Mar’s poolside bar in the Bahamas finds its way to considerably less tropical locales, you’ll hear no complaints from us.
Equal parts condensed milk and gin up the ante on creaminess with a tinge of juniper; a hearty amount of fresh coconut water and garnish is sure to cool down anyone under the hot summer sun. For more of a kick, try topping the cocktail off with a sprinkle of roasted nutmeg coconut flakes, which will definitely turn up the heat. Serve in an old-fashioned glass over an ice ball. While summer may be wrapping up, those tropical beach days don’t have to feel quite so far away, after all.
