    I love your show Pati, especially enjoyed the one with Jose Andres. Gin & tonic is the national drink of Spain and the Coco Fish is basically a version of the gin & tonic and the entomology of the word ‘coco’ is Spanish/Portugese origin meaning grinning face from the dots on the coconut.

      Hola Fabiola, It’s simple syrup. To make it use 1/4 cup sugar and a 1/4 cup water and heat over low heat. Bring it to a simmer and cook, stirring it a few times, until the sugar has dissolved.
