READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by FLKeysJen

From "Miami Spice: The New Florida Cuisine." Traditionally, saoco (sa-OH-ko) is made with the water (clear liquid) of a green coconut. Here in Orlando, coconut water is available in cans like soda.

The best thing one can do with a can of coconut water. Absolutely delightful, cool and refreshing! Either as is or I also tried with a splash of Malibu added. Great both ways.
