Catamaran Cocktail Recipe

Prior to the Catamaran, there were no gin focussed coconut-flavoured cocktails on the menu at Death & Co. Shannon Tebay started with the cream of coconut and built on it from there. A grapefruit-forward gin works amazingly well in this drink (the original recipe calls for the American Bimini gin) - the bitter citrus flavours are complimented and amplified with the Aperol, grapefruit juice and cinnamon syrup. The cream of coconut balances the bitterness and adds texture to what is essentially a grapefruit gin colada.
