Author Notes: I like more pineapple than coconut in my pina coladas, so I thought I'd add some fresh pineapple as well as pineapple juice. And after a few experiments, I found that a combination of coconut milk and cream of coconut produced the right blend of sweetness and creaminess. A spritz of lime juice and a grating of fresh nutmeg were later additions. —Merrill Stubbs

- Juice of 1/2 large lime
- Pinch freshly grated nutmeg, plus more for garnish
