Frosty Coconut Mojitos.

Oh it’s Friday?

In July?

MY OTHER RECIPES

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

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.
