The Coconaut (with re-entry)

Updated: Feb 14, 2020

The perfect way to toast Apollo 11's 50th anniversary!

Much of the Tiki crazes heyday coincided with the space race. As a result, there are plenty of drinks with astronaut related names. Oddly enough, I couldn't find one named after the moon... However, the Coconaut fits the bill nicely as it's named for the space program, and provides an opportunity to play with fire.

Coconaut with Re-entry

Coconaut (w/ Re-entry)

  • 4 ounces Coco Lopez Coconut Cream*

  • 1 ounces fresh Lime juice

  • 3 1/2 ounces dark Jamaican rum

Put everything in a blender, top with ice cubes, and blend until slushy. Open pour into coconut mug.

For Re-entry - Remove the pulp from the spent lime shell, soak a breadcrumb in 151 proof rum* and drop it in the spent lime shell. float the lime shell on the Coconaut, light the bread crumb on fire and serve.

*Bamboo Sam's customizations - I actually prefer to use SC's Coconut Cream Syrup to Coco Lopez. You get the flavor with less oil in a more mixable form. Additionally, your flame will look better if you use lemon extract as opposed to 151 rum. Last, but not least, make your own breadcrumbs. Pre-made breadcrumbs are always oily or flavored and no one wants a garlic-herb Coconaut...
