Cocktail of the week: Kricket's coco loco – recipe | The good mixer

Simple, but satisfying, and ideal for those cold nights when you just want something quick and easy to get your lips around. While this would work just fine using good old Malibu, it would be well worth trying something a little more premium – my favourite is Aluna.

Coco loco

Serves 1

5 cardamom pods
50ml coconut rum
(see introduction)
25ml coconut water
15ml lime juice
15ml sugar syrup
– a standard 1:1 water:sugar ratio
1 mint leaf, to garnish

Put the cardamom pods in a shaker and bash them with a wooden spoon to open them up slightly. Add the rum, coconut water, lime juice, sugar syrup and a big handful of ice, and shake hard. Strain into a martini glass, garnish with the mint leaf and serve.
