CHEF’s TIP!

Chef Insider Tip: Preparing Coconut Foam
When preparing the coconut foam for this cocktail, first soak gelatin in ice water until malleable. Meanwhile combine coconut milk, condensed milk, coconut cream and gelatin once malleable in a pot at low heat (under 50°C) then blend, strain and pour into the siphon. Place gasket in siphon, screw top and insert charger. Turn siphon upside down, add charger and tighten until it hisses. Then turn siphon upright and refrigerate overnight for use.
