Intended to be drunk cool, but not cold. I have added the option of adding a sweetener. A favorite with Cape Verdean children.
Cape Verde is a country in West Africa. It comprises a group of islands of the Atlantic Ocean, west of Senegal. It is part of the region of Islands collectively known as Macaronesia.
The coconut is a common ingredient in the Cape Verde islands, in the 1600′s the coconut was already being transported to America via west Africa and Cape Verde.
