The foundation of coconut liqueur – or coco liqueur for short – is the milk from tropical coconuts. It’s mostly produced in Central and South America, where the coconut tree grows naturally. In liquor stores you can buy creamy coconut liqueur (like the famous Batida de Coco) as well as the clear variety (like Coco Ribe). Both are equally useful as mixers.
Coconut liqueur can be found in various forms like rum, whiskey and vodka. Because of the fruit flavor it is a popular selection for cocktails and mixed drinks. The liqueur was originally served as an after dinner drink and will typically have a mint mixture in it as well. Rum is one of the leading types of the liqueur available, especially in the United States. Brands like Malibu and Cruzan keep the various types of coconut flavor alcohol flowing and make it easy for drink options to be formed.
