The best cocktail ever!

So, I’m always making this cocktail for at least four people at a time. Given that, the “shot” glass I use is about 80mls. You can make this for one person with a regular shot glass, just halve or quarter the amount of lime and ice. The rest will scale just fine. Just be mindful that my reference to a “shot” below is my big 80ml shot glass to make about four drinks.

1 lime
1.5 shots tequila
1/2 shot cointreau
2 shots coconut cream
3/4 shot sugar syrup
1 tray of ice

Sugar/salt rim

  1. Cut the lime in to quarters and put the lime, tequila and Cointreau in a blender and blend on high until the lime is liquid. And yes, the whole lime including the skin. It’s great 🙂

  2. Add coconut cream, sugar syrup and ice to the blender and blend until slushy consistency.

  3. Dip the top of your glasses in the remaining sugar syrup and then dip in the sugar/salt mix so the whole rim is coated. Repeat with remaining glass(es).

  4. Pour cocktail in to rimmed glasses and enjoy getting drunk in a flavour haze.

Sugar syrup is just 1/2 sugar: 1/2 boiling water. Depending on how many cocktail rounds I’m planning on making, I’ll usually do half a cup to one cup of sugar and boiling water. Stir the equal portions together in a heatproof bowl and chill until ready.

To make the rim, combine equal parts sea salt and white sugar in a container that will fit the rim of whatever glass you’re using.
