I’ve made plans for you.

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

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


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


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.

    I had a drink similar to this on vacation once and loved it! I cannot wait to make your version and see if it is similar!

    We made these last night. This is my new signature drink! They are soo very refreshing and delicious. I did not blend them however, I don’t care for frozen drinks. This worked great just shaking with ice in a shaker or the second batch ( they’re that good) I blended without the ice and then poured over ice. Fabulous!
