Coconut Mojitos

These mojitos are slightly sweet and perfectly refreshing.Coconut Mojitos | A Nerd Cooks

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.Coconut Mojitos | A Nerd Cooks

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.Coconut Mojitos | A Nerd Cooks

You’ll need:

  • 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!

  1. It is sad that I CANNOT FIND LA CROIX WHERE I LIVE! Everyone talks about it and I’m dying to try it! I suspect the coconut flavor would be a favorite of mine also. These sound great!
