This coconut cocktail or coco loco cocktail is perfect for those summer days, so in the Caribbean area, it is very famous and quite popular, not only for visitors but also for residents. There it is straightforward to find it around the beach since, in some street stalls, the seller can uncover a coconut by opening it with a machete or knife, add different drinks, coconut milk, the ice inside and serve it while you observe the preparation.
The presentation of this cocktail is quite lovely because fresh coconut used, and when one starts to try it, I would like to order one and the other. Coconut is also quite common in this area; just look at various preparations that have this ingredient as their main base. Some recipes with coconut are cocadas, rice with coconut, fish in coconut sauce, coconut ceviche, among others (in our blog, you can find some of these recipes).
In this crazy coconut recipe, it was challenging to find a fresh coconut to serve it as it traditionally found. So I used a glass that gives an excellent presentation and some coconut hulls that I roasted myself to decorate.
It is also essential to keep in mind that, if this cocktail is to share with the smallest of the house, you should not add any liquor, it would only do by mixing the water and coconut milk with crushed ice. Drinks such as vodka, rum, or brandy add as an option for adults.
