These coconut mojitos are lightly sweet and perfectly refreshing.
Guys, it’s hot in Durham. Very hot. Very sweaty. Weather like this necessitates refreshing beverages.
I’ve recently begun a love affair with La Croix sparkling water. Though I really like many of the flavors, coconut has emerged as my favorite. Since first trying it, I’ve suspected that it would be fantastic as part of a cocktail.
I saw these coconut mojitos on 5 O’Clock Fashionistas, and thought that they looked pretty great. I took mine in a bit of a different direction, though.
