coconut milk


Non-alcoholic additives, juices & mixers


Generic for the liquid made by twice steeping & twice straining the combination of coconut water, found inside the coconut fruit, grated coconut meat (the white, mealy interior of this hard-husked fruit of the coconut palm) in hot water or scalded milk. Less common than coconut cream, and always as a flavoring in tropical drinks, it is featured in several obscure drinks (such as the Caribbean Caper) nonetheless. Coconut is also used as a drink additive for its flavoring in extract, syrup & liqueur forms. Used as a garnish, and its shell, halved, is used as a drink vessel.




Generally available.
