Homemade Coconut Liqueurs

Just a few easy steps to an exotic summer drink


By Tamara Novacoviç

Don’t you just love coconut? Coconut is one of my ultimate summer flavors and pleasures.  And this is the short story of how coconut milk, heavy cream, some pineapple juice and sugar turned plain rum into an exotic treat.

I love home made liqueurs. With a minimum amount of time and effort, you can have so many different flavors, colors, types…adequate for so many different palates and moods. An infused liqueur lends flavor to alcohol, it evokes the joy of hot summer days, sandy beaches and relaxing afternoons.
Batida de Coco (such a fun name) is a Brazilian coconut flavored liqueur based on rum or cachaça. You can drink it on its own, add it to the cake fillings, sorbets, combine it with juice to make delicious cocktails…Endless possibilities.

Piña colada
is similar, but flavored with pineapple juice.

These drinks are ultra easy and quick. Basically just combine four-five ingredients and get coconut heaven. Take a sip and you’ll be in Portugal, Brazil, or Cuba, enjoying summer sun on a sand beach, or standing on the street in the middle of Havana, surrounded by street dancers and beats of Cuban music, sticky hot air, colorful summer dresses…with your Batida de Coco or Piña colada  in your hand.
