Inspired by the famous 1950s hot spot the Cocoanut Grove, this drink with lush island flavors is designed to sate a suave clientele working up a thirst on the dance floor. Using coconut sorbet makes for a lighter, frostier drink, while rich, creamy coconut gelato turns it into a great after-dinner libation.
