Aluna caught our attention last year with their silky-smooth coconut rum, which boasts a unique flavour profile with notes of fresh, toasted coconut. Think a highly sophisticated version of Malibu, without the cheap synthetic taste and you’re on the right track. In short, it’s heavenly.
News that they had just dropped a coconut coffee liqueur was music to our ears, and we can confirm that it’s just as tempting as its predecessor. Blending deliciously dark 100% Arabica Cold Brew Coffee with toasted coconut, the liqueur is finished with subtle smoky notes and black cardamom.
Bottled at 25% ABV, it’s a caffeine fiend’s dream and tastes the business whether on the rocks or mixed into a cocktail. Those with a sweet tooth may want to pour over vanilla ice-cream to create an indulgent Astral Affogato.
On top of that, the bottle is a thing of beauty and designed to look great on your home bar with its matte black bottle and rose gold foil. As you might imagine, Aluna Coconut Coffee Liqueur helps make an exceptionally good Espresso Martini, the ultimate post-dinner tipple. Here’s the recipe:
Aluna Coconut Espresso Martini
50ml Aluna Coconut Coffee Liqueur
Double shot of espresso
15ml Aluna Coconut Rum
Shake all the ingredients together with crushed ice, strain and serve. Garnish with coffee beans and grated chocolate, et voila. The perfect serve.
