King Coconut Wine | Cooking with Aunty D

2022 Dec 2

It’s not a truly Lankan Christmas without this refreshing and boozy Thambili (King Coconut) wine!

Here’s how you make it!


King Coconut 2 nos

Cardamom 5 nos

Cloves 10 nos

Cinnamon ½ inch

Sugar 200 g

Yeast 1 tsp



Extract the king coconut water and pour it into a glass jar.

Add cardamoms, cloves, cinnamon, sugar and yeast and combine well.

Cover the king coconut mixture and store for one month (ensuring the bottle is not sealed too tightly).

Finally, strain the fermented mixture and pour yourself a fancy glass of spiced King Coconut Wine!
