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.
- 2 tsp simple syrup, see notes
- 5-8 fresh mint leaves, crushed between your fingers, plus a few more for garnish (not crushed)
- 1.5 oz coconut rum
- juice from ½ lime
- Coconut La Croix sparkling water
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.
