29. procure, puncture, and drink from a real coconut

I was very excited about this item on my list! Seeing as how I was going to get to see LJF at the Lobster Bake (and she was the one who suggested I add this to my list), I purchased a coconut expressly for the weekend. Then I promptly forgot about it in the throes of cooking mussels, eating lobster and oysters, and generally enjoying the mayhem of that weekend.

When Amy and I got home on August 4, I found the coconut in the car. And so we gave it a shot. Level of success: sadly, low.

What you don’t see is that sadly, the coconut was rotten and so the booze combined with rotten coconut water was simply disgusting. Alas. I might try it again with a green-skinned coconut though. I’ve drunk from one of those before and it was delicious.
