Storage: It hasn’t been long enough for me to have any definite suggestions for shelf life but the alcohol and sugar in this recipe should give it a lengthy expiration date. From experience I know it’s perfectly fine at room temperature for at least 3+ days. In the fridge it will last for a good 2 weeks or longer. Many recipes made with real cream claim to be good for up to 2 months when refrigerated!

When chilled the coconut cream fat forms a layer on top of the liqueur. Give the bottle a good shake before serving or spoon the layer from the liqueur and discard it.
