coconut mojito cocktail

If there’s one thing you need to know anything about me, it’s that I LOVE COCONUT! I drink coconut water on the reg, I’ve had coconut beer, I’m even drinking a coconut Lacroix right now. So when we saw this recipe I was like “Hell yeah, Mom, let’s make this.” Well, my mom made them and I photographed them. Whatever.

Anyhow, they’re super refreshing and a fun twist on the traditional Mojito. You should make them for all your Memorial Day festivities this weekend (or if you’re one of my UK readers…just for the regular weekend!).

coconut mojito cocktail


Fresh mint leaves
1/2 fresh lime
1 oz Malibu rum
1 oz white rum
1 oz Coco Real cream of coconut
Club soda


In a cocktail shaker, muddle a small handful of mint leaves with the juice of half a lime. Add the Malibu, white rum, cream of coconut, and ice. Give it a good shake, then strain into a glass filled with ice. Top off with club soda, stir, and add mint leaves to garnish.  

And that’s it! Double the recipe and make one for a friend! I’m warning you though, you can’t taste the alcohol in these at all. And you can’t feel how drunk you are when you’re floating in a pool. Have fun, and take an Uber!
