Why You’ll Love This Cocktail

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

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

Speaking of chatting, I first tasted this yummy beverage when one of my friends came to visit for the weekend. When she sees this post, she’ll be surprised I created a special version of her favorite drink!

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.

Put The Lime In The Coconut

Have you ever heard that 70’s song about putting the lime in the coconut? Well, that’s exactly what’s happening here. There’s something about the tanginess of lime mixed with coconut and mint that reminds you of sunny days, fun beach trips, and adventures by the sea.

Try my other refreshing beverages the next time you gather the girls together…

Cheers!
