adon adon coroWhen we come to town jepara, it is not complete if we have not tasted a drink called “Adon-adon Coro”. Jepara typical drink is made from dough coconut milk, ginger, Javanese sugar, coconut milk, young coconut slices and added with other spices.

All circles, whether children, adolescents, and parents loved this drink. Because of the peculiar smell and taste delicious. What else in the drink during the rainy season like this, the body must be warm and fresh. Does not feel cold anymore. Because the presentation is still in a warm state. This beverage is one of the typical culinary jepara which is believed to increase stamina.

Not difficult to get a drink like this. We stayed to the SCJ, north of Jepara town square plaza, there were plenty of vendors who sell these. We do not need much ngluarin money to buy this drink …. Cuman with money around Rp. 5000 we could already feel this drink. For whoever who has never tried to drink “adon-adon coro”, you must be hooked!
