Here, courtesy of Mark Herron in Sydney, is a series of recipes from
Downunder. These coconut recipes are from the Sydney Morning Herald
9/29/92 from a cooking column titled "Raw Materials" by Meryl

Asian food stores contains young coconut juice, which has been frozen
in plastic packs.
Put into a cocktail shaker or mixing bowl 30 ml lime juice, 60 ml
simple syrup, 90 ml rum. 120 ml young coconut- nut juice. Shake or
stir with ice cubes and strain into a tall glass. Garnish with a
