    Ingredients for A Summertime Sherry Colada

    • 2 ounces Amontillado or Manzanilla sherry
    • 1 ounce pineapple juice
    • 1 ounce coconut cream
    • 3/4 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
    • pineapple wedges and pineapple fronds for garnish optional
    • Angostura bitters optional

    Instructions

    The Method

    • Combine the Amontillado or Manzanilla sherry, pineapple juice, coconut cream, and fresh lemon juice in a cocktail shaker.
    • Add ice to the top and cap shaker.
    • Shake for 20 seconds or until well chilled before straining into a highball or zombie glass. Coconut cream will immediately begin to break. This is normal.
    • Garnish with Maraschino cherries, a pineapple wedge, pineapple frond(s), and Angostura bitters if desired.
    • Have summer snacks at the ready, and enjoy!
