Why You'll Love This Cocktail

Sometimes you need to just kick back with a nice cocktail. How would you like to be sipping on a Coconut Mojito right about now?

Mojitos are cool, refreshing, and the perfect way to relax on a sunny afternoon. If you have an abundance of mint growing in your backyard, it comes in handy when guests drop by to sit on the porch and chat.

Adding coconut rum to the mix creates a tropical flavor that will whisk you away! If you're looking for a great variation, try this delicious Blackberry Mojito that blends fresh blackberries and mint together. Or, pair your Coconut Mojito with these delicious Mojito Cupcakes for the perfect sweet treat!

Ingredients

  • fresh mint leaves - it's easy to grow your own in a container, or purchase it packaged at the grocery store
  • coconut rum - Bacardi makes a nice version
  • limeade - Simply Limeade is what I recommend
  • lemon-lime soda or club soda - Sierra Mist or Sprite work well. Use club soda if you are cutting back on sugar
  • lime - a squeeze of fresh lime makes a big difference.

How to Make a Coconut Mojito

  • In a tall glass, add 2 to 3 mint leaves to the bottom, along with coconut rum.
  • Muddle the mint with the rum by using a spoon or muddler (ad)
  • Add ice to the top of the glass.
  • Add limeade and stir well.
  • Pour lemon-lime or club soda to the top of the glass. Stir well.
  • Garnish with a lime and extra mint leaves.

Recipe Tips

  • You can substitute 1 ounce of lime juice and 1 ounce of simple syrup for limeade if it's not available.
  • Be sure to muddle the mint with the rum to mix the flavors together.
  • If you want your cocktail to be less sweet, use club soda instead of lemon-lime soda.

More Refreshing Beverages
