1.5 cups water
12 oz. by weight white sugar

1 Vegetable peeler
1 Hammer (May or may not need)
1 Drill and drill bit (May or may not need)

1 medium pot
1 Rubber spatula for stirring
1 food processor with shredder disc (or box grater)
2 1L glass jars or one 2L glass jar. Wide mouth will really help. Mason jars work great


Step 1

Opening the coconut.

Get your drill, put in a new, or clean bit, drill through two of the eyes then let the milk drain into the container. You will not be using the coconut milk for your liqueur, it will make it cloudy.

Add the sugar water to the Jar and stir. Make sure the coconut is completely submerged.

Aging, Straining, filtering, and Drinking Your Coconut Liqueur

Shake well and store away from sunlight in a cool and dry place for 2-3 weeks.

Agitate the jar every few days to encourage extraction.

After your waited for a minimum of 2 weeks, strain your liqueur through several layers of cheesecloth.

It helps to moisten the cheesecloth first so the liquid permeates more smoothly.

Once you get to the point where you have strained everything out, you can gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the liquid and juice.

If you still need to strain your liqueur further due to lack of clarity, you can strain it 1 more time through a coffee strainer.
