    Substitute Grenadine or a dash of cherry brandy for the Coecoei if you don't happen to have any in RI.

    Aruba Ariba

    Hi
    We got home a couple of weeks ago from Aruba. We visit frequently and love it, of course.
    This time around, I bought a bottle of "Palmera's Aruba Ariba" mix.
    The only instructions on the bottle stated to "mix with fruit punch and ice." It did not give any measurements.
    Anyone know how much of the mix should be used with how much fruit punch.
    Thanks for any help!!

    found on this forum on another thread: (of course it's from none other than arubalisa)

    i'll tell from you my personal experience, our attempts to recreate the aruba ariba have always failed...it just doesn't taste the same.

    Aruba Ariba
    Coecoei (liquor) is one of the major ingredients in making the famous "Aruba Ariba." To make this drink here is the following recipe:
    Ingredients
    1/2 oz. vodka
    1/2 oz. 151 rum (better if using Ron Rico from Aruba, higher proof)
    1/8 oz Coecoei
    1/8 oz Crème de Banana
    1/2 cup orange juice
    1/2 cup cranberry juice
    1/2 cup pineapple juice OR you're favourite "punch drink"

    Splash of Grenadine Top with Grand Marnier.
    Do not shake, just stir lightly. Top with a "flag" toothpick with cherry and orange.

    Re: Aruba Ariba Cocktails
    This makes one serving. Mix all ingredients in blender and enjoy!!
    1 banana
    1 tsp sugar
    1 and a half scoops crushed ice
    3/4 oz heavy cream
    1 oz rum
    1/2 oz creme de banana liquor
    I know there are different variations of this recipe, but even so, this one is great!!

    Local Culture
    With a recipe that is centuries old, a local Aruban liquor, “coecoei” was first made by Indian tribes. It has a distinctive red color, derived from one of its prime ingredients—the sap from the “kukwisa” or agave plant, which is mixed with rum and cane sugar. Coecoei is often used today in the creation of island cocktails, including the Aruba Sunset which also employs Ponche Crème, Aruba’s own potent eggnog mixture.

    As far as I am aware, and I know someone will jump in if I am wrong, Coecoei is not exported from Aruba.

    thanks all, if anyone goes thru Palmera Rum, maybe they can find out the mix ratio. I picked this bottle up at airport on my way home
    It might come down to trial and error, although don't want to have to experiment too much, I won't remember what I did LOL

    Problem is that Coecoei in not available anywhere outside of Aruba. Can anyone recommend the best substitute?

    You can try Sambuca as a substitute. In accordance with the prophecy.
