The Coconut Club Cocktail

The Coconut Club Cocktail

Tiki culture, the island-centric are back and better than ever. The tropical tides have turned and are washing ashore at Miss B’s Coconut Club in Pacific Beach, San Diego.
 
Tropical birds, tiki gods and colorful flowers come to life in a lively celebration at Miss B’s Coconut Club, a Mission Beach restaurant celebrating San Diego’s nautical and maritime history.

Thanks to mixologist Rob McShea, the tiki revival, retro tropical cocktails and the “endless vacation” vibes are popular again in San Diego. With over 10 years in the bar and cocktail industry, Mr. McShea knows a thing or two about drinks.

Their signature drink is The Coconut Club Cocktail. It is essentially Miss B’s sultry version of the classic Painkiller. The secret comes through in the ingredients. Rob makes a house made rum mix, house orange and pineapple cordial and fresh coconut cream. Please see recipe below courtesy of Rob McShea. 

Ingredients:
2 oz rum
2 oz pineapple-orange cordial
2 oz coconut crème
1 cup crushed ice and some extra for décor
Nutmeg
Orchid flower for décor
 
Directions:
1. Add all ingredients to a mixing tin.
2. Add 1 cup crushed ice
3. Seal the tin and whip
4. Dump contents into a tiki mug
5. Top with a generous amount of crushed ice
6. Grate nutmeg on top and add an orchid flower for garnish
7. Enjoy!
