Coconut Mint Mojito

|

It’s been a couple years since I made my crazy-popular Coconut Lime Cupcakes, so I thought I should add to the Coconut-Lime flavour selections with two new coconut-lime recipes: a Coconut Lime Cream Pie and a Coconut Lime Mint Mojito!

    Coconut Mint Mojito, a refreshing lime coconut mint cocktail perfect for summer parties

I first shared this Coconut Lime Mojito on my friend, Amanda’s blog, Amanda’s Cookin’.

Coconut and lime and an often underrated tropical flavour. Less bright and punchy than tropical citrus flavours, coconut and lime is a refreshing combination for those who want a less overwhelming and more balanced sweetness in their tropical drinks.

Add in some mint and you have a super refreshing cocktail that leaves you feeling cool and quenched! I used dark rum in my version, but you could use a light rum or even a coconut-flavoured rum.

You can swap out the coconut milk for it’s creamier, more indulgent counterpart – coconut cream – or coconut water if you want to shave off some calories. But for the love of cocktails, please don’t use mint extract in place of the real mint – use a mint simple syrup if you have to or just skip the mint entirely. Using real mint gives this cocktail a completely different flavour than the one-dimension, overpowering mint extract would lend it. Real mint or bust!

I often order my liquor from Drizly because they have a quick delivery time (sometimes within 40 minutes) and no expensive mark-ups. Purchasing from them supports local retailers, too. They have a great variety of White Rums which you can check out here.
