Default Frozen Coconut Water

I have a friend from St Vincent, who has family that still lives there. She suggested freezing coconut water and put a small amount of the ice in a glass of neat rum. Of course, she suggested Captain Bligh Sunset Gold. She said this is common on St. Vincent, and the coconut water adds to the flavor of the rum. I have had rum and coconut water before, but never thought of using it as ice.

Freezing coconut water is the only way I know of to preserve it. Coconut water and rum is one of my favorite drinks and your friend is right Captain Bligh and coconut is a great drink.

Ron con Agua de Coco is very popular down here also. It's also mixed with Scotch or Gin.

Coconut water is sold in cans down here, although it's not bad, It doesn't hold up to the real thing.

Yes, the only way I will aquire it is in cans. I will make some small cubes and try it with different rums. What is the ratio of the usual mix that you all have seen when mixing with just the water instead of ice? A splash? 50/50?

In my experience the usual mix is about a 50/50 blend. Interestingly, While the coconut from which the water is derived is chilled before opening, the drink itself is served without ice. At least by the locals here.

Yeah, we tend to get it i cans here too - a number of companies make them, Goya in particular. They generally come with little cubes/slivers of coconut in the "water".

So the idea for this (rather lovely-sounding) drink is ice cubes made of coconut 'water' in the rum? Or a measure of the liquid 'water' (chilled) in the rum?

Either way sounds fantastic...
Cheers!
