Drink a Coconut With a Straw

In the 2001 things to do book, there is a suggestion to “drink the milk from a coconut with a straw” I wrote about drinking from a fresh coconut in Hawaii (here). But there was no straw involved. I figured it was still okay since it was a new experience, and you don’t really need to involve straws anyway right?

Looking through photos to remember past fun experiences / adventures and came across the photos from my first trip to the Dominican Republic in 2013. I found a photo where we’re drinking from coconuts with straws. Hey that means I can be more specific in completely that suggested thing to do. But, I then realized, it’s not just coconut in there, but a very yummy alcoholic drink.  That was my favorite drink of choice for the trip, I kept going back for more. The cocktail is called Coco Loco and there are many variations but the general ingredients are:  rum, coconut cream, coconut water, lime juice, and ice cubes.

I wanted to share about this, because even though I wasn’t doing the exact suggestion, it doesn’t really matter. It’s just a suggestion. Plus, I also wanted to share that even though I am doing this more then once, it was completely different experiences. Sometimes it’s worth looking back at what you’ve “crossed off” and see if you want to enjoy doing it again, only change it up.

Have you had any coconut related experiences?
