Coconut is one of the freshest and delightful seeds to consume. Coconut rum uses the milk and flesh of the coconut with rum, which is then left to ferment over time. Many alcoholic beverages use coconut rum to add a tropical twist. These drinks are often simple and easy to create using two or three ingredients in conjunction with the coconut rum. Serve for a celebration or after a long day of work.
