Koko Daiquiri No.2

Updated: Jul 23, 2021

I came across this bottle recently that certainly has offered an alternative for coconut rum. Koko Kanu is Jamaican Rum with the flavors of coconut, perfect for your tiki needs! It differs from the popular coconut liqueur Malibu in several aspects. Koko Kanu is first and foremost a rum created by the famous J Wray and Nephew company, infused with coconut essence. It's bottled at 75 proof making it boozy enough to be the base spirit and qualifying it as a rum (according to international standards). Naturally a Daiquiri would be a great way to break in this new bottle. I tried the Koko Daiquiri on the official cocktail list, but thought it needed some alterations. Here is one with a slight alteration providing for some deeper flavors of rum to support the coconut flavors in Koko Kanu.

Koko Daiquiri No.2

  • 30ml Koko Kanu Rum

  • 15ml Dark Rum

  • 20ml Lime Juice

  • 1 Bar spoon of Simple Syrup (5ml)

Combine the ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Shake and double strain into a glass. Garnish with a dehydrated lime. Enjoy!
