Boss Colada

  • Base Spirit Bitters
  • Preparation Shaken
  • Flavor Bitter Fruity
  • Served On the Rocks

The Boss Colada is an early creation of Nick Detrich and one of the signature drinks of Cane & Table, his proto-tike hotspot. The drink is an exercise in balance between bitter snaps and Peychaud’s and a tiki medley that would make Don the Beachcomber proud.

NOTE: Said delicate balance has been complicated by a shift in the Baska formula towards the bitter side. The original recipe follows and those attempting to build it should experiment a little, reducing the Baska and/or increase a sweeter ingredient.
