Just like the song it’s named after, this cocktail is super-smooth. Tropical notes of coconut, aged tequila, and citrus blend together beautifully, while a touch of sherry adds complexity. Shake it up, strain over crushed ice, and savor the island flavors.



  1. Into a cocktail shaker, add tequila, sherry, lemon juice, orange juice, coconut cream, and simple syrup. Fill shaker with ice cubes, and fill rocks glass with crushed ice. Give the cocktail a quick shake: since it’s a rich drink, it shouldn’t be diluted by over-shaking. Strain into the glass and top with more crushed ice. Use a Microplane to grate fresh nutmeg on top before serving.
