Active Time: 5 Minutes Total Time: 12 Hours


1 Cocktail Serving

  • Create Coconut Dulce De Leche

    Preheat a sous vide bath to 90°C (194°F).
    Place the unopened can in the sous vide bath and cook for 7 hours.
    After 7 hours, remove the can from the bath and allow it to cool to room temperature naturally, about 3-5 hours. Reserve at room temperature. Refrigerate once opened.
    CHEF TIP: Unopened cans are shelf-stable and do not need to be refrigerated.
  • Create Acid Adjusted Orange Juice

    In a mixing bowl, whisk all ingredients together. Reserve in the refrigerator until needed.
    Why Acid Adjust? Acid adjusting pineapple juice to match the acidity of lime juice is a technique that allows you to achieve the desired tartness in cocktails without introducing the distinct lime flavor. This process gives you greater control over the flavor profile of your cocktail.
  • Create Saline Solution

    Whisk the ingredients together. Reserve until needed.
  • Create Cocktail

    Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with the ice and shake hard until partially chilled.
    Pour over the remaining pebble ice.
    Garnish the cocktail with a parasol and straw.
