The Despacito

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 1/2 ounces reposado tequila, preferably Arette or Tromba brand

1/2 ounce sherry, preferably Palo Cortado brand

1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice

1/2 ounce orange juice

3/4 ounce coconut cream

1/4 ounce simple syrup, heat equal parts sugar and water until sugar dissolves; cool before using

Ice cubes

Crushed ice

1 whole nutmeg, for grating


  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.
