Coconut Mojito

I don't like a lot of drinks, but I do love Mojitos, and I also love Pina Coladas! So when I saw this recipe for Coconut Mojitos in People Magazine I had to write it down. I have been saving it for a while now and finally got to try it out now that I am no longer pregnant! They are really good and sweet; just how I like my drinks.

Makes one drink

  • 8 mint leaves
  • ½ lime, cut into 4 wedges
  • ¼ cup coconut rum
  • 2 tbsp. sour mix
  • 1 tbsp. coconut cream, such as Coco Lopez
  • ¼ cup lemon-lime soda
  • ¼ cup club soda
Place mint leaves and 3 lime wedges in a cocktail shaker and muddle. Add rum, sour mix and coconut cream, then fill shaker with ice. Close and shake well. Strain mixture into a glass, and top with lemon-lime soda and club soda. Garnish with a lime wedge.

SERVING TIP: Serve in Mason Jar Mugs, $24 for a set of 6;
