COCONUT MOJITOS: THE PERFECT HOLIDAY COCKTAIL

‘Tis the Season for white festive drinks and these Coconut Mojitos are sure to deliver on that promise. Preferably, these should be shared with friends at a Christmas party, while sitting around the tree and playing that Speak Out Game. Sidenote: that’d be SO MUCH FUN! 🥂

These Coconut Mojitos are perfect to pre-game a holiday party with friends. Or if you’re hosting a party, like I am tonight, this drink makes for a great signature holiday cocktail. It’s very simple – takes a minute to make – and it’s so, so, so delicious.

HOW TO MAKE COCONUT MOJITOS

A basic mojito includes a nice bunch of mint leaves, limes, sugar, rum, and club soda. But, for our Coconut Mojitos we are going to add cream of coconut and pomegranate seeds.

  • We will start with muddling our mint, lime, and sugar together until the lime releases its juices and oils.
  • After that, we are going to add the rum and coconut cream; stir, fill the shaker with ice and shake until chilled.
  • Strain mixture into a cocktail glass and top off with club soda. If you want, add more ice.
  • For garnish, add pomegranate seeds and fresh mint, then serve.

Pull up your happy pants, friends, because this irresistibly fresh cocktail will put you right into that Christmas party mode as soon as you take your first sip.

WHICH RUM IS BEST FOR MOJITOS?

I will say to go ahead and use whatever you’ve got on hand, but I’d also suggest to reach for Bacardi Silver Rum, or even Malibu Rum. The more coconut-ty, the better, if you ask me.

Not into coconut cream? Or, can’t have it because it’s high in calories and fat? Try my Cucumber Mojito or Strawberry Pom Mojito.
