How to Make Toddy from Coconut Water: Step-by-Step Guide


Before you start making toddy, make sure you have the following ingredients on hand:

* 2 cups of fresh coconut water
* 1/4 cup of sugar (optional)
* A clean glass jar with a lid or airlock

A cotton cloth or cheesecloth


  1. Clean and sanitize your glass jar: Before you start making toddy, it’s important to ensure that your jar is clean and sanitized. This will help prevent any contamination and spoilage of the fermented coconut water.

  2. Add sugar (optional): If you prefer your toddy to be a little sweeter, add 1/4 cup of sugar to the glass jar. Stir well to combine.

  3. Pour in the coconut water: Slowly pour the fresh coconut water into the glass jar, leaving about an inch of space at the top.

  4. Cover the jar with a cotton cloth or cheesecloth: Once the coconut water is added, cover the jar with a clean cotton cloth or cheesecloth to keep out any dust or debris.

  5. Let it ferment: Place the jar in a warm and dark place, such as a cupboard or on a shelf. Allow it to ferment for 2-3 days, shaking the jar every day to ensure that all the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is well mixed.

  6. Taste the toddy: After 2-3 days, taste the toddy to see if it has reached your desired level of sweetness and fermentation. If you prefer it a little stronger, allow it to continue fermenting for another day or two.

  7. Strain the toddy: Once you’re happy with the flavor of your toddy, strain it through a cotton cloth or cheesecloth into a clean glass. Discard any remaining pulp or solids.

  8. Serve and enjoy!: Pour yourself a glass of toddy and enjoy this refreshing and natural beverage. Store any leftover toddy in the fridge and consume within 3-5 days.
