Homemade Toddy

Activated a little yeast in warm water and sugar.

Add store bought coconut water and keep it in a warm dark place for four days.

Takes longer here due to the colder climate.

Take 1 litre coconut water in a jar. Add 2.5 table spoons of sugar. Add 3 fourth tea spoon yeast. Mix properly. Cover with fabric where air penetrates. Leavev it for 24 hrs. Toddy is Ready.

The most important step is to stir the yeast in a little warm water with the sugar so that it is activated, then add this solution to the coconut water.

No particular brand of coconut water. Depends in the location and country you live.
