Summer is so close! Here’s a great cocktail to make you feel like you’re sitting on the beach in no time!! The club soda is truly to taste. We felt it really sucked some of the coconut flavor out and wasn’t as good.
Coconut Mint Mojito
(Adapted from Sugar Spice and Glitter)
1-2 teaspoons lime simple syrup (or plain)
Handful mint (about 8 sprigs)
3 oz rum
1 oz cream of coconut
Club soda, to taste
Extra lime juice, to taste
Homemade Lime Simple Syrup:
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
Zest of 2-3 limes
Note: to make enough simple syrup for just this recipe, you will need 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup sugar and the zest of 1 lime.
Fill with ice and remaining ingredients.
Shake vigorously until drink is well chilled and then strain out into an ice-filled glass.
Adjust to taste with lime juice and garnish with additional mint or lime.
