Summer Cocktail Series : Coconut Mojito

You heard me! I love anything coconut scented or flavored (Coconut M&Ms are all that is good and right in the world.) so of course I had to figure out a way to make a delicious, classic cocktail THAT MUCH MORE DELISH. For those of you who aren’t Team Coco like I am, the addition of coconut sparkling water adds only a subtle coconut flavor that doesn’t change the body of the drink, as say, coconut cream would.

Coconut Mojito

Ingredients for 2 drinks:

1/4 cup sugar

25-30 mint leaves

2 limes, cut into wedges

4 oz white rum

Coconut La Croix


Combine sugar, 8-10 mint leaves and a squeeze of lime juice (just a little!) in a blender and pulse until combined. Move to a small dish. Dip glasses in lime juice then mint sugar to rim. (I place the glasses in the fridge for 1-2 minutes to set the sugar.) Place 8-10 mint leaves and a lime wedge in each glass and muddle to release mint oils. Add remaining lime wedges and 1 Tbsp of mint sugar to each glass and muddle to release lime juices. Fill glasses with ice. Pour 2 oz of white rum in each and top with Coconut La Croix. Mix well and add more mint sugar to taste. Garnish with a sprig of mint or lime wedge.

    I’ve been looking for coconut La Croix, and I haven’t found it at my local Kroger (Heights). Where did you find it? I must try this cocktail! Thanks for sharing. xo.

    Nicole, they have the coconut kind at the Kroger in Hillcrest. When I went last week, they were selling the 12 pack cases, 2 for $7.00. Whole Foods also has them.
