I have a killer summer cocktail for you today called “Coco Loco“! Coco Loco is a Colombian Coconut Cocktail, popular on the Caribbean coast of the country. Coco Loco literally translates to “Crazy Coconut“. This drink is usually sold by vendors around the beach who make them right in front of you while you wait.
They take a fresh coconut and make a hole in the top with a machete, and then prepare the delicious and fresh Coco Loco for you. They always serve this cocktail in fresh coconuts, the presentation is beautiful and the drink is absolutely amazing!
I didn’t have fresh coconuts today so, I served it in a totuma and mason jars, but if you can find fresh coconuts use them as a serving glass and your guests will love you for it.
There are different variations of Coco Loco throughout the country and every vendor has his or her own recipe for it, but its pretty much a cocktail made with rum, tequila, vodka, lime juice, coconut cream, coconut water and ice cubes.
I hope you enjoy making this Coco Loco cocktail. It is extremely refreshing for summertime parties or just sitting on the porch reading a magazine.
