We have a stash of coconuts from our harvest, and we drained a few for fresh coconut water and shavings to use in a cocktail.
I made the cocktail with a finger or two of white rum, a splash of coconut water and a sprinkling of freshly grated coconut, with lots of ice. The subtle sweetness and natural oil of the coconut make for an eminently sippable drink.
