Back in May I shared a recipe for a Blueberry Mojito and it sparked a bit of conversation around all the different kinds of Mojitos you can make! It’s one of those versatile cocktails that works well with just about any kind of fruit, and one that’s perfect for the warm weather months of the year because it tends to be light and refreshing.
I’ve tasted lots of different Mojito variations while out and about over the years, and have been keeping a growing list of the flavors I want to try and make for myself. Coconut has been at the top of that list for a very long time, so a rainy weekend here on St. Simons made for the perfect time to do some experimenting!
And you guys….this one is a WINNER. I don’t ever share recipes that I don’t 100% love, but every now and again I’ll try a recipe or come up with one that I REALLY love and this one falls into that category! Maybe it’s because it’s been so unbearably hot that it tasted extra refreshing. Or the fact that Mojitos simply taste better at the beach. Or perhaps it’s because my mom is visiting and she helped me settle on the recipe. I don’t know, but whatever the case may be, this Mojito just tastes good.
But beware: it goes down dangerously fast and easy... So don’t let the fact that it tastes like coconuts fool you – she’s a boozy one!
