Sky Juice

This creamy concoction of fresh coconut water and sweetened condensed milk liberally mixed with gin is also known as Gully Wash and tastes equally good by either name. Sip yours with a sea view at The Green Parrot, overlooking Nassau Harbour. Ground nutmeg and cinnamon bring warming sweetness to balance juniper-forward gin in this creamy cocktail. With a base of hydrating coconut water, it's a pleasantly quaffable drink.
