Coconuts for Coconuts (And Rum)

In my opinion, one of life's simple joys is a fresh coconut with a splash of blended rum, especially when sitting on a beach with your toes in the waves. 

But, sometimes we can't get to the beach, so why not bring the beach to you?!? 

Fortunately, most grocery stores carry young coconuts (at least once in a while), so it's easy to bring home the tropics and enjoy one of the planet's simplest & tastiest tiki cocktials. 

Here's how to do it:

Bang through the top of the coconut using a King Coco Coconut mallet, peel back the top of the coconut, drink an ounce or two of the coconut water, add rum. 


I really enjoy a rummy coconut with Appleton Reserve Signature Reserve Rum, although feel free to experiment with your favorite rums, I'm sure there are a lot of other delicious combinations! 

Don't forget to garnish your coconut, it might be a simple cocktail, but it deserves a fresh orchid or two.  Because, #TikiVibes.
