The Harry Nilsson

And now for something completely different...

Saw this on the net somewhere and thought why not share this with you. Bottoms up and here's to Harry!

The Harry Nilsson

2 ounces Brazilian cachaça or white rum.
Juice of one lime.
1-1/2 ounces coconut syrup.
Dash Angostura bitters.

Club soda to fill.

In a tall Collins glass, combine cachaça or
rum, lime juice and coconut syrup (for a stronger
and less sweet drink, use coconut rum instead).
Add soda to fill, dash bitters and stir. Garnish
with a lime wheel, and relieve de bellyache.
Doctor's orders.

YES, coconut syrup DOES exist.

If you can't find it in our stores, check the recipe in the comment (use white or brown sugar to create light or dark syrup)

Very interesting! I love the name, where does on get coconut syrup? Is there any brand that you recommend?

Well, never expecting anyone to loko at it. Well, there is no specific brand you have to use. I found one in an Indian Halal shop but there are plenty about (check on google)and I posted a picture of one brand.

If all fails, try this

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light syrup
1 cup cream or half and half
1 teaspoon coconut extract


Boil sugar and syrup together until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, and add cream and extract. Store in the refrigerator
