Found this while messing around online. I'd like to say thanks to Jim for the idea.

Someone please give me one good reason why we shouldn't do this with rum.

Well, here with the mead they are actually creating a fermented beverage. Do you mean just put rum in a coconut?

I don't know, but it wouldn't surprise me. I've certainly had drinks that weren't much more than rum (or was that tequila?) and lime juice served to me in a coconut. Keeping rum in a coconut for awhile to steep isn't much more revolutionary. However, I don't know how any better this would be than simply putting chunks of coconut meat into a bottle of rum -- other than the appearance.
