Coconut Mojitos are the perfect tropical summer crowd-pleaser. Coconut Mojitos are everything you’re looking for in a beachy drink. They’re fruity, sweet, and creamy; but not as heavy as a piña colada or many other tropical drinks. They’re balanced and easy to sip thanks to the addition of lime and refreshing mint.
Ingredients (makes 1):
- A couple small bunches of mint (about 6-12 leaves depending on your preference - save some for garnish)
- 4-5 mini key limes (This recipe also works with regular limes if you just use about 2 limes instead)
- White Rum
- 1 can of cream of coconut (We like CocoLopez)
- Crushed Ice
Muddle in a chilled glass:
- A large handful of mint
- About 4 key limes quartered
Shake in a cocktail shaker:
- 2 oz white rum
- 3/4 oz cream of coconut
Strain the coconut and rum mixture into the glass with the muddled limes and mint. Stir thoroughly and add lots of crushed ice to the glass. Garnish with a small bunch of fresh mint and a lime wedge.
*For a lighter drink top with a little bit of lime club soda
