Recipe for The Lifeboat, a signature cocktail for Bones of an Inland Sea:


Muddle six mint leaves with 1 Tablespoon coconut water (unsweetened)

Combine mint in a martini shaker with:

1 part Citron vodka
1 part Blue Curaçao
1 part coconut water
1 T coconut cream (sweetened)
juice from 1/2 a lime

Add ice, cover, and shake vigorously, then pour into a martini glass. Add a splash of club soda or seltzer and garnish with a thinly sliced star fruit (or lime) on the rim.

Optional: sugar the rim and sprinkle with a few Pop Rocks to mimic the underwater sounds of the ocean around Dominica.
