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.
- 2 tsp simple syrup
- 5-8 fresh mint leaves (crushed between your fingers), plus a few more for garnish (not crushed)
- 1 shot coconut rum (or white rum)
- juice from 1/2 lime
- Coconut La Croix soda
Add the simple syrup, mint leaves, rum, and lime juice to the bottom of a tall glass. Add ice and top with Coconut La Croix. Garnish with more mint leaves and enjoy!
