Hi from Spain,
this is my first topic. I'd like to know a good coconut syrup to do cocktails ( piña colada, blue hawaiian,...) and where to buy it through internet.

Thanks

Aloha, and welcome to Tiki Central! I think what most folks here use is Coco Lopez. I did a quick search on Froogle (Google's shopping search), and found Coco Lopez available online at http://www.elcolmadito.com for $1.99. Looks like you can also get it from http://www.bevmax.com for $2.99. Since I assume you'll want to have it shipped to Spain, you may want to try the Froogle feature yourself to look for more places to find the best shipping option for you. Good luck!

p.s. -- oh, no, wait, you said coconut syrup, and I thought of cream of coconut... I think they're two different things. At any rate, once someone here can tell you their brand of choice for coconup syrup, give Froogle a whirl.

Well according to Coco Lopez their Cream of Coconut is the "secret" ingredient for incredible Pina Coladas.

Here is a link to syrup. http://www.flavoredsyrups.net/torani-Coconut.htm
Although this is mainly used in coffee or desserts, sno-cones etc. You could use it to make a cocktail drink. I have never tried it that way myself, (guess i'll have to ) but the quality of this brand is quite good.
Good luck, have fun testing, and Welcome to TC!

This may not be what you're looking for, but there is a wonderful all-natural coconut soda called Coco Rico you can buy in most southeast asian / latin american groceries. It's in a green can with a gold coconut on it and also in 2-litre bottles.

It tastes great - not too sweet and without that soapy taste, but it's more more intense than young coconut water. It's popular as a cooking ingredient too for making Filipino and other asian / polynesian type dishes.

On a separate note, do you people think Filipino stuff is Tiki-compatible? Not just the decor but also the food, clothes and furniture?

For some reason I feel like displaying my San Miguel beer mug with my Tikis.
