For #ThirstyThursday this week from Mexico, we’re sipping on a coco loco!
These “crazy coconuts,” as it’s translated, can be found throughout coastal Mexico and other Latin American countries too.
A coco loco is essentially a fresh coconut with booze added to the coconut water. Often, rum is the liquor of choice. Being Mexico, we sometimes see tequila used. Occasionally it's vodka that's poured into the coconut, or even a mix of all three liquors. From beach to beach, it may be a different concoction each time.
Yet here on the playa of Tenacatita, Fabian may have perfected his rendition of a coco loco. Interestingly, he uses gin! (A heavy hand at that.) On top of the gin is a splash of grenadine, a squeeze of lime, and a tiny pinch of salt, that’s all mixed together with what seems like an entire liter of fresh coconut water that's naturally found in this large coconut!
It is indeed as refreshing as it looks! And at $60 pesos (~$3 USD) per coco loco, I think Fabian may have just won over some repeat customers for the summer.
¡Salud! 🤪🥥 ... See MoreSee Less
Enjoy them served cold. When finished drinking the milk the palapa will take them back and scrape all the meat out, put it back in the coconut shell and add a thin chili sauce. A couple of toothpicks and lime juice to eat and flavor. Yum.
When we were backpacking in Southeast Asia, one of my favorite drinks to whip up was what I called a coco-rum-onut - basically the same thing!
Yum, just be careful of taking a siesta in the sun!😘
I've never had one but it looks so good and refreshing (if ice cold)!
I love coconut water and gin!❣️👌🏼
