Green Coconuts with Rum

without comments

Yesterday I stumbled across fresh green coconuts in the organic section of Fairway.  As a follow up to my post about rum with coconut water, this is the type of coconut that you should use to make the drink properly:

At the Fatty Crab they open these with a really big knife, but I happen to keep a hatchet around for these types of applications, so I used that.  However you open it, drain out the coconut water, and mix dark rum (preferably Kraken) in a 50/50 ratio with the coconut water.  Pour the drink back into the coconut (you will have extra coconut water…these were full to the brim) and enjoy!  Serve with a spoon to scoop out the coconut as you go.  Fresh coconuts like this have very soft inner flesh, with an almost custard-like consistency.  Enjoy, and pretend you are on the beach!
