You hung poolside, watched the fireworks … and listened to Miley Cyrus’s “Party in the U.S.A.” one too many times. In other words, you worked up a thirst!

Now that the Fourth of July holiday is over, make one last toast to the Founding Fathers with this summer-inspired recipe.

The Yankee Doodle

• 1½ oz. coconut vodka (recipe recommends SKYY Infusions Coconut Vodka)
• 3 oz. coconut water
• ¾ oz. fresh lime juice
• 8 mint leaves
Combine mint and coconut vodka in a mixing glass and muddle gently. Add ice, lime juice and coconut water, and shake quickly for one to two seconds. Transfer into a 12 oz. highball service glass with same ice and mint leaves. Garnish with grated coconut and fresh lime wheel.
