Default The most exotic way i`ve ever been drinking rum..

I was really lucky to all of a sudden find fresh sugarcane sticks, so i made those sugarcane shooters. And even though it was a bit of work...it`s hands down the most exotic way i`ve ever been drinking rum! and so tasty!

I have found my new drink Nirvana. I have some Coconut water, bought at whole foods, and tried it with Appleton VX today. Excellent. Then I added a small twist if lime. The Coconut water is from Brazil. I made some ice cubes also. I will use those soon.
This drink may well compete with rum n ginger for first place.
OK, suggestions on what rums to mix with the Coconut water?

Also I purchased some canned Coconut Juice. What is the difference between this and coconut water? It is hard to tell from the packaging.

What a coincidence! i was going to watch a movie and opened a can of coconut water a few hours ago..and then i tried Havana Club 3 years to go with it and after that Dillon blanc. Both were nice with the addition of some ice and a sprinkle of lime juice as well. The canned coconut water here is slightly sweetened so only ice and some lime is needed.

The Coconut juice in a can is usually sweetened coconut water.

I also made one drink with muddled pineapple, JW&N overproof rum, coconut water, ice and lime. But now i have switched to Banks XM neat. That`s my "goodnight drink"..

Hank,
Did you mix the coconut water with the VX in a liquid state? Or use the cubes?

If liquid, what was your ratio cw to VX? Sounds good.

That is quite a coincidence that you went for the same drink as I at the same time. A rum ESP connection.

A 50/50 mix, with a couple of small coconut water ice cubes is my ratio. Today I used St. Vincent Extra Gold, and it was even better than the VX. This drink is so delicious I can't stand it.

The Coconut Juice I have says that it is pure Coconut Juice, no added sweeteners. I have not compared the two yet, but when I do, I will post what I find.

This drink REALLY makes me miss the Islands.

I don't use this term lightly or without really meaning it, but I love....dote on...coconut water! Is there anything better? Maybe a Maine lobster or the rum in my glass. But that's it! Coconut water. It's sublime.

Coconut water is really nice..i`m enjoying coconutwater and La Belle Cabresse with some lime and ice, my last drink for today. I also filled one of my ice trays with coconut water, so i can try that with some Clèment vieux tomorrow.

I have found it is better to use large ice cubes instead of the small ones for coconut water, as it tends to melt a little faster than normal ice, Except when you just want a hint of coconut water. As the coco water melts slowly, the taste changes as you go. A very sensual way to enjoy this drink. I am trying this with many rums, and they are all good. I find that the flavor profiles are all different, and you have to adjust the rum/coco water ratio. Nature definetly intended sugar cane and coconut to be married in this fashion. What drink could be better on a hot day in Florida? It will be a long hot summer......

That`s what i liked the most with it..

But i would recommend to leave out the little coconut flesh bits and strain the water before it go in the ice tray. When i made my cubes the coconut flesh changed a bit.
