අරක්කු යනු දකුණු ආසියාවේ සහ අග්නිදිග ආසියාවේ සමහර රටවල දක්නට ලැබෙන ආසවනය කල රන් පැහැ මද්යසාරමය පාන වර්ගයකි. fermented fruit, grain, sugarcane, or the sap of coconut palms.
The word itself is derived from the Arabic word arak (عرق, ‛araq), which means "sweat" or "strong liquor" (and in the මැද පෙරදිග is usually made from grapes).
Milky sap is taken from the flowers of coconut palm trees before the flowers bloom. The sap quickly ferments to become a mildly alcoholic drink called "tuak", “toddy” or “palm wine,” which is then distilled in vats made of wood (usually halmilla or teak). The end product is a spirit whose taste is usually described as “somewhere between whisky and rum.” It is generally distilled to between 33% and 50% alcohol by volume (66 to 100 proof).
Coconut arrack is traditionally drunk either straight or with water, but it is also taken with ginger ale, cola, soda water, and in cocktails.
