Introducing the original secret ingredient for the classic Pina Colada! Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut was created by Don Ramon Lopez Irizarry in Puerto Rico when he combined coconut cream and natural cane sugar to create a deliciously creamy concoction with the perfect balance of sweetness!
Coco Lopez went on to become the original and best base ingredient for the traditional Pina Colada in 1954 when Lopez himself invented the drink! Today Coco Lopez is hugely popular worldwide and is used in over 50 countries for creating mouth-watering Pina Coladas, Coconut Daiquiris, tropical drinks, mocktails and desserts!
Made using real cream of coconut extracted from fresh, sun-ripened Caribbean coconuts, Coco Lopez has a sweet and delicious flavour which is similar to coconut milk but with a thicker and more paste-like consistency which also makes it perfect for creating spreads, sauces, and much more!
The essential ingredient that every bartender should have in their drinks cabinet, Coco Lopez comes in 425g tins and makes approximately 8 Pina Coladas. Simply mix with pineapple juice, rum and ice and blend for the perfect creamy cocktail, and dont forget to top it off by garnishing with pineapple slices and a cherry! (link to Opies)
Please note: Coco Lopez may congeal if cold; to bring it back to the desired liquid consistency simply submerge the tin in warm water.
