Oh it’s Friday?

In July?

Frosty Coconut Mojitos I howsweeteats.com

I’ve made plans for you.

They include these drinks. Pink straws included. !!!! (if you want.) (but why wouldn’t you?)

Frosty Coconut Mojitos I howsweeteats.com

I figured instead of forcing my childish Jessica-specific vernacular on you today along with extra love for sprinkles, glitter, 90s boy bands, denim and all other predictable things I gripe about, I’d just show you a picture of this icy drink and hope it’s enough.

Sometimes that’s all you need. Can I get away with this?

Frosty Coconut Mojitos

Yield: serves 4 appropriately, 2 obnoxiously

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

3/4 cup coconut rum
1/2 cup canned light coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut water
1/4 cup club soda or seltzer (I used coconut la croix)
1/2 cup mint simple syrup (recipe below)
2 limes, juiced
1/4 cup fresh mint, torn into pieces
1 1/2 cups ice, approximately

mint simple syrup
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
10 fresh mint leaves

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse until ice is crushed and mixture is combined. Add more ice if needed, then taste and add a little extra rum if desired.

mint simple syrup
Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and heat over medium heat just until it bubbles, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Turn heat down to low for 2 minutes, then remove and let sit to cool for 15 to 20 minutes.

I made coconut mango mojitos (hold the frost) early last year and talked about how I was feeling legitimately old. Still rockin’ it.

    for something a little thicker I might skip the coconut water and go straight for cream of coconut – because ya know, calories don’t count when you drink them ;)

    At the wedding I’m going to tonight, I’m going to ask the bartender to make me one of these, okay maybe a few. If he doesn’t know how, I’m directing him to this blog post. I have a smartphone, so it’s doable. I’ve put a plan on top of your plan.

    I have chocolate mint growing in my backyard right now. I’ve got 30 minutes ’till 12 and then this is happening immediately. I don’t know if I’m going to make it though! Coconut, rum, mint, chocolate….what in the world else could you need on a beautiful sunny Friday in July??!

    These look delish!!! If I wanted to make it a virgin, is there something I should use to replace the rum??

    Reply

    • Jessica — July 12th, 2013 @ 2:49 pm

      i think if you just increased the rest of the ingredients and maybe added a little coconut extract?? you could always use full fat coconut milk or even coconut cream, i just used the light stuff so it wasn’t super thick and creamy with the alcohol. if i made a virgin one, i’d probably use full-fat!

        I am so glad you posted a non-alcoholic version of this drink. If you have any other suggestions since it has been almost a year since this was posted, please let me know ☺

    I already love mojitos and anything with coconut, so putting the two together would be a dangerous cocktail for me. Mainly because it would not be a cocktail…it would be cocktails. Plural to the tenth degree.

    Long story short, I hate mojitos with a passion and actually had a super strong aversion to them for years. I tried one the first night I got suuuuuuuper drunk – the funny thing is I didn’t even finish it and made myself sick off screwdrivers, but since the mojitos were the only new thing I tried that was my aversion I developed. It was so bad that I’d gag and get a little nauseous if I even saw a picture of one. This is the first time I have EVER looked at a mojito and thought, “wow, that actually looks delicious.” I don’t know what black magic this is, but it says a lot about your recipe that even I think it looks amazing!
