    has anybody tried it without rum,because I need a non alcoholic drink for a school project.

    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.

    Very refreshing on a hot day, and I nearly always have the ingredients handy. A win all around.

    YUM!!! Can't believe I've never heard of this drink before! And with a wealth of green coconuts (pipas, here in CR) in the trees surrounding the house - I can tell this will become our go-to rum drink! Thanks for posting!
