The Turnover


1½ ounces aged rum (Flor de Caña recommended)

1½ ounces reposado tequila (el Jimador recommended)

2 ounces freshly squeezed grapefruit juice

1½ ounces Coco Lopez

½ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice

¼ ounce allspice dram*

Garnish: grated nutmeg

The Turnover is a transitional cocktail, relying on a good dose of grapefruit juice to bridge the gap between winter spices and warm weather spirits.


*Or substitute pimento dram or a dash of allspice.

  1. In a cocktail tin, combine all ingredients except nutmeg with ice. Shake vigorously, then strain into a chilled cocktail coupe or martini glass. Garnish with grated nutmeg.
