So you haven’t made it to the Caribbean yet this summer? Yeah, neither have I.

But you can pretend on Friday and Saturday at Truck Yard. You’ll get a coconut to open, and then a bartender will make you a drink inside that coconut. Jason Kosmas, co-founder of the group behind Aylesbury Duck Vodka, Caña Brava Rum, Fords Gin and Tequila Cabeza, created these three cocktails to choose from:

– Lada Colada – pineapple-infused Caña Brava Rum, lime juice and simple syrup
– Lime in d’ Coconut – Fords Gin, lime juice and Angostura Bitters
– My Tie – Caña Brava Rum, lime juice, orgeat syrup and orange liqueur

There are 100 coconuts per day starting at 5 pm. Drinks are $10. Turn up Bob Marley and imagine you’re far, far away.
