I found a recipe for coconut wine but its not quite what I think I'm looking for. I'm aware that coconut oil can go rancid before there's enough alchohol to preserve the ingredients. I want to make a strong drink that I can use as a mixer with a coconut flavour like malibu?

If I ferment water to a high ABV and then top up the demijohn after the process with coconut milk and sugar would this stay preserved ? Or would a high ABV (16 +) overpower the flavour, if so, what strong coconut flavours could I add for this to work?

its possible that it could preserve it, you will probably wanna find someone that has done this or you could do it yourself as an experiment and report back
