On this show, a tasty coconut cocktail starts us in the right mood for inebriated shenanigans. Coconutorama comes to us courtesy of Cody, one of the best bartender mixologists at Bond bar at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas. Sunshine spent a few afternoons tasting outstanding craft cocktails and Cody made more than a few of them. We have said it before and we will say it again. When in Vegas, hit up the Bond bar at Cosmo for outstanding cocktails and great conversation with the folks behind the bar.
Coconutorama by Cody at Cosmo
2 ounces Vodka
1.5 ounces Coconut Water (we like the kind with coconut meat)
.5 ounce fresh Lemon Juice
1.5 ounces Lychee puree (you can buy canned lychees and blend them well if you can't find it)
Top with Lavender soda
Shake all ingredients with ice except lavender soda. Pour into glass filled with ice. Top with soda and garnish with cherries, lemon twist or coconut foam.
With a cocktail in hand, its time for something special. This episode of the show has been dedicated to Carol Bodas. Her husband Jeff has requested that we help celebrate her birthday with some of her favorite music by The Martini Kings, Nutty and the Latin Livers. Carol, we wish you the happiest of celebrations and a lovely drive to work ;)
