The beach staple is now making waves at the bars. These are five pick-me-ups with coconut water to tide you through the day.
The camp classic makes a comeback; it’s no longer the default drink reserved for tourists thirsting for a taste of the tropical. After all, there’s nothing naff about coconut, pineapple or rum – save for the Rupert Holmes reference. At The Bee, the concoction of coconut rum and white rum, plus coconut water, lime and pineapple juice and passion fruit purée, is served up sweet and shaken (not slushy) – and yes, in a tall tiki mug.
Sometimes, the most exciting part of a cocktail is what goes on top of it. A coconut meringue, dusted with lime zest, is all you need to sweeten the deal – a deal you can drink as early as 7am. A dash of Havana 3yo is added to the coconut water for that perfect wake-up call.
