Fresh Coconut Cooler Recipe
The best part of this unusual cocktail is that you can eat the fresh coconut flesh as you sip. Also, the coconut water hydrates you as you imbibe, boosting your day-drinking longevity.
- 4 fresh young coconuts (can be found at Thai markets, Whole Foods, or health food stores)
- 12 ounces rum or vodka
- Ice, for serving
- 1 lime, quartered into wedges
- 4 long straws and long spoons, or 4 spoon straws
Use a sharp knife to carefully make a square cut in the top, peaked part of the coconut. Remove the square and add alcohol to taste, about 1-2 shots per coconut. Add a few ice cubes, a wedge of lime, and a spoon/straw — enjoy!
