   * Can be made from fresh or dried coconut or purchased bottled. Do not use
   the canned coconut mix for mixed drinks as it is very sweet and different.
   If using fresh coconut, cut coconut meat into 1 pieces & place equal
   amounts of coconut & hot water in food processor or blender. Puree at high
   speed for a couple of minutes, let steep for 30 minutes. Then pour into a
   strainer set over a bowl. Press on the pulp and squeeze by the handful to
   extract as milk as possible. Pour the milk through a fine-mesh strainer.
   For dried coconut: use 1 cup unsweetened, dried coconut with 1 1/2 c hot
   tap water. Allow to stand for 5 minutes. Puree one minute and proceed as
   above. Will keep up to three days refrigerated and indefinitely, if frozen.
