LAS VEGAS, Sept. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This weekend, Coco Taps (http://www.cocotaps.com/), a coconut water beverage system company, provides branded and tapped baby coconuts to mix with Bacardi Coconut Rum for the Life is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas. This is the second year Coco Taps has presented its tapped drinkable coconuts at the festival, an annual celebration of music, food, art, and culture.
Coco Taps will use its Coco Taps Tool Kit to tap over 3,000 fresh coconuts at the Bacardi booth at the festival, making them ready for an injection of Bacardi Coconut Rum. The Coco and Rum cocktail is available at the Bacardi Neon Tiki Bar.
Coco Love and Life is Beautiful
"Coco Taps and Bacardi are spreading the coco love with our fresh-tapped Rum and Cocos branded with "Life is Beautiful," Vincent Zaldivar, chief coconut-in-charge of Coco Taps, said. "Our cocos will keep people cool for a fun and uplifting festival in our home town."
The Coco Taps Tool Kit includes a tapper tool and reusable cap for drinking directly from the coconut. Tapped and sealed coconuts can be refrigerated for more than two weeks.
"The food industry now has an easy way to prepare, refrigerate and serve fresh natural coconut water," Zaldivar said. "Drinking straight from a tapped unpasteurized coconut gives people a refreshing, tasty and healthy beverage," he added.
