Transform a Coco Loco into a Monkey Colada

Sipping on plain water is definitely refreshing, but not nearly as delectable as sipping on coconut water. Switch your signature drink for a refreshing summer sipper with Monkey Shoulder’s Monkey Colada.

Coco Loco is a Colombian coconut cocktail originally made popular on the Caribbean coast. Monkey Shoulder Scotch whisky turns the tradition upside down by substituting rum with the world’s most trending Scotch as voted by the top 100 bars.

Although “Coco Loco” usually refers to someone going totally crazy in response to an unexpected occurrence, a sip of the Monkey Colada is sure to revive a great speediness of enthusiasm and wildness in anyone who is lucky enough to taste it. With its sweet, tropical flavour, the Monkey Colada is made up of a dash of Monkey Shoulder, pineapple juice, fresh lime juice, and not forgetting the coco in the loco with coconut puree and coconut water. This makes it the perfect refreshing cocktail to enjoy this summer, which is sure to end the year on a crazy note. Mix it up and impress your guests, or sip it while you enjoy the sun poolside, just don’t forget to top it up with a pineapple slice and those corny paper umbrellas.
