Are you looking for the infamous Coco Loco drink recipe? If so, they you’ve come to the right places. I’m going to tell you about the drink, where you can find it, and of course how to make one.

Let’s dive into the Coco Loco!

Coco Loco! Coco Loco! If you’ve ever been on a Royal Caribbean cruise through the Bahamas then you’ve probably heard these words yelled out. Coco Loco! Coco Loco!

You can hear the echo of  “Coco Loco” from just about every where on Royal Caribbean’s private island which is called…Coco Cay. See the theme here?

If you don’t know about Coco Cay, it was once known as Little Stirrup Cay. It’s located right next to Great Stirrup Cay, which is Norwegian Cruise line’s private island. The island is located in the Berry Islands of the Bahamas, about 50 miles from Nassau. Coco Cay is the perfect to unwind and let your worries drift away. But it can get hot, so when the Caribbean sun starts heating things up, just cool off with a Coco Loco!

Order one (or 5!) and you’ll taste just how good this Caribbean rum drink really is. And once you do, you’ll come to love the Royal Caribbean staff obnoxiously yelling out “Coco Loco! Coco Loco!”

You might even start to seek them out!

But you don’t have to go to Coco Cay to get a Coco Loco, you can make one right at home. Here’s the Coco Loco drink recipe so you can liven up you’re next home party.
