4 Tried-and-True Coconut Cocktail Favorites

Copra’s pure Thai coconut water adds a refreshing, slightly tropical kick to just about any cocktail. Best of all, the hydrating power of coconut water brings potassium and all 5 essential electrolytes into the mix, so you can worry that much less about the morning after drinking effects. Non-pasteurized coconut water’s light taste, particularly from the young Thai “nam hom” coconuts that we single source, adds a subtle sweetness and nuttiness to drinks, and can be combined with most spirits, from gin and tequila to dry rosé and white wine. You’ll be able to taste the difference compared to pasteurized coconut water,  and feel it the next day! Copra takes care to extract the coconut water same day as harvest, minimally process and freeze immediately. You can even freeze coconut water into ice cubes for added flavor. Read on for several tried-and-true cocktail favorites.
