Cool drinks are what I love in the summer, especially coconut juice and drinks with coconut milk. A last hoorah for the end of summer…
I first had this drink when I was living in Boracay (yes, I was actually living on this beautiful island beach resort) about 10 years back. Gosh! Has it been that long? I lived in a cottage fronting the white sand beach for two sun-kissed years. I would have this drink in the late afternoons just before the sun begins to set. This is actually a Brazilian drink but uses ingredients easily and commonly used in the Philippines. If I didn’t know better I’d think this was a Pinoy creation. I have an ex-boyfriend to thank for this one, he substituted Tanduay rum for cachaca in the original recipe . I think he’s still lounging in Boracay…
1 13.5-0z can coconut cream
approximately 2 shots Tanduay rum
6 tablespoons muscovado sugar
Shake coconut cream, rum, 1 can of water and sugar in a bottle until sugar dissolves.
Fill shaker with ice cubes and cream mixture.
Pour into glasses and add ice cubes.
