Coconut Leo

Since we’re on the topic of simple cocktails, is anything better than rum and coconut water?  But screw that canned stuff.  Fresh is best and here’s my source.

Coconut Leo is a legend on the island of Ambergris Caye in Belize.  He barefooted-ly scales trees, harvests coconuts and sells the water to local restaurants and bars.  He’ll also hook-up passersby with coconuts and photo-ops.  Here’s some of his handy work.
