Whether we're moisturising with coconut oil, treating ourselves to coconut yoghurt or sipping on coconut water - it seems we're all obsessed with the tropical fruit this summer. So, what better way to celebrate the arrival of *proper* summer weather than with a rum cocktail that packs a coconut punch.
And our pick of the best coconut rum right now? Koko Kanu - the only true coconut rum available in the UK.
A beautifully rich tasting rum from the Caribbean island of Jamaica, Koko Kanu is smooth, round and delicious on its own over ice. BUT it's also the perfect ingredient in summer cocktails or with a fruity mixer for a long and refreshing summer drink.
Our favourite way to serve the authentic blend of crystal clear rum and coconut? As an elegant daiquiri (sure to impress your friends at a BBQ). Here's how to make one the Koko way.
50ml Koko Kanu (RRP for 70cl £19.99)
25ml Freshly Pressed Lime Juice
5ml Gomme (it’s easy to make your own, simply shake equal parts sugar and water in a bottle until the sugar dissolves)
1. Chill a martini glass
2. Add all ingredients to a Boston shaker (or you could use a jam jar!)
3. Shake over ice and double strain.
4. Pour into the chilled glass and garnish with a slice of lime or a mint leaf.
5. Sip on your delicious cocktail!
