Gin & Coconut at Coley

Coley’s Gin & Coconut is possibly our favourite of the lot: the London dry gin is naturally sweetened with fresh coconut water, and the lime lends it just the right touch of tart.

Sky Juice at Mantra

At Mantra, Sky Juice is mixed with Thai coconut water, evaporated milk and Cachaça 51 rum. It’s a creamy concoction that’s served in coconut – a lighter eggnog, if you will, with its own hangover cure.

Piña Colada at The Bee

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.

Minion Juice at Huckleberry After Dark

There are only three ingredients in this simple but delicious cocktail: We know coconut water and pandan syrup work well together, but the addition of house-made banana rum gives it an extra depth in flavour.

Meringue Colada at Gravy Baby

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.
