Yael Vengroff, the beverage director at The Spare Room in The Hollywood Roosevelt and the 2018 Spirited Awards American Bartender of the Year, created this coconut-sherry liquid sunshine as a one-off for the “Evening of Tiki” series she hosts at the bar every May through September.

This recipe originally appeared as part of “The Drink of Summer Has Arrived. Barely in Time.”
