You’d probably never guess this refreshing slushy was made using mostly shelf-stable ingredients—like canned coconut milk, canned pineapple juice, and a simple syrup made with baking spices from your pantry.
This recipe is shared in partnership with Don Julio. —The Editors
For the cocktail:
1 1/2 ounces
Don Julio Reposado Tequila
unsweetened coconut milk (shake the can well before reopening)
canned pineapple juice
fresh lime juice
Pinch of freshly grated or ground nutmeg (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a blender with ice and blend until slushy. Pour into a rocks glass. Garnish with a small pinch of ground nutmeg.
For the spiced syrup:
Toast whole cloves and allspice in a small, dry saucepan over low heat, agitating occasionally, until fragrant (just a few minutes).
Add the sugar and 1 cup water. Heat until almost boiling, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat and add the lime peels. Cool completely and then strain. (The syrup will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks).
