This Filipino inspired cocktail is made with coconut cream and a coconut spirit called Lambanog. It's finished with some pandan powder.

I made these for my brother when he came over for the holidays. I spent about 30 minutes photographing it and he kept hovering asking if I was finished yet. He obviously doesn't know how life is like living with a food photographer.
Filipino Inspired Cocktail
I wanted to make a cocktail based on one of my favorite flavor combinations - pandan and coconut.
The recipe for this cocktail is very simple. All you need is a can of coconut cream, lots of ice and a bottle of coconut spirit. The quick way to make it is to put it all in a blender and pour into shot glasses. Or if you prefer you can also make it with the shaken method by putting all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker instead.
Either way both methods give you a very quick cocktail. To finish I just dusted the edges with pandan powder and desiccated coconut.
He finally got to try it and probably had 2 or 3 more. It was worth the wait.
