Have you ever ate or drink something without really knowing when it was and then, after one taste, it was pure orgasm in your mouth? I had this feeling daily during my visit to the capital of Colombia, Bogotá. Everything I tasted was absolutely amazing and one drink that I truly loved was the Limonada de Coco. While the drink is usually without alcohol, this thrill-seeker decided to create a boozy Limonada de Coco recipe with rum.

The Origin of This Recipe

I truly believe that the Latin-American cuisine is one of the most underrated cuisines in the world. Mexican cuisine has been getting a lot of buzz lately thanks to the popularity of Tex-Mex cuisine, but there are still many typical Latin-American dishes to be discovered by the general public. The Latin-American cuisine is packed with flavor and the best thing about it is that the taste is something everyone can love. There is a reason why my Empanada recipe and my Mini Arepas recipe are the best-viewed posts here on my blog.

Limonada de Coco or in English, Coconut Limeade, is a typical Colombian drink that is often mistakenly referred to as a Coconut Lemonade. In reality, this drink is made the typical tropical citric fruit, lime, instead of its sweeter counterpart, lemon But, since lemonade is the more known term we’ll go with that.

The Coconut Limeade is a recipe that originated from northern-coastal cities of Colombia, the Colombian Caribbean. Kind of logical, don’t you think? From what I’ve heard, it’s especially popular in Cartagena but enjoyed all over the country. Except for the colder cities, I assume.

If you’ve never been to Bogotá then I highly encourage you to go again. Even if it’s just to have some Limonada de Coco. Colombia stole my heart and I will surely return soon.

How to Make Limonada de Coco

Limonada de Coco is made with limes. I know not everyone has access to limes, so you can always try it with lemon but I do advice to use lime, even it’s not fresh. The recipe is so simple and easy to make. All you need is just a handful of ingredients and a blender. That’s it! You’ll have an amazingly refreshing drink for the Summer months or even the colder months when you just want a bit of Summer.

For this specific Limonada de Coco recipe, I added some happy juice to it. In the Latin-Music there is always a king, queen, prince, for a specific genre. Naturally, I had to choose the king of the Caribbean spirit: RUM! It almost gives it a slight Piña Colada taste.
