Cocoroco is an alcoholic beverage from Bolivia notable for its extremely high alcohol content by volume, 96%.[1] Cocoroco is sold as "potable alcohol", most often in tin cans. Like rum, cocoroco is made from sugar cane.[2] Unlawful trade of cocoroco and coca leaves occurs across the Altiplano among Aymara communities living in Chile and Bolivia.[2] Cocoroco is illegal in some neighboring countries such as Chile where all alcoholic drinks with over 55% alcohol content by volume are illegal.[citation needed]

Notable brands of cocoroco include Caiman and Ceibo.
