On the Rocks: Coconut-Lime Mojito

Melissa  |  March 08

Happy Friday SB Chic readers! The weekend could NOT have come sooner for me, and today we are mixing up one of my all-time-fav concoctions-a mojito! I LOVE coconut, but some of the coconut mojitos I’ve had frankly taste like sunscreen…but this recipe is fresh, light, and absolutely delightful!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 shot clear rum

Tiny splash of simple syrup

Lime wedge

Fresh mint leaves

Splash of coconut milk

Lemon-lime soda (aka Sprite)

Soda

*Add lime wedge, 7-10 mint leaves, simple syrup, and coconut milk into a glass (note: you can find canned coconut MILK pretty much anywhere–which is different than coconut water). Muddle these ingredients and make sure to extract the oils from the lime rind, and try not to massacre the mint (muddle gently–the last thing you want is mint stuck in your teeth). Add ice, rum, fill with lemon-lime soda, and top with a splash of club soda. Give a good shake and serve on the rocks.

-XOXO Melissa
