Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing one of my new favorite cocktails: Pineapple Coconut Mojitos!
Oh mercy. I can’t even begin to describe how insanely delicious these mojitos are… not only that, they’re incredibly simple to make with ingredients you can easily find. These are guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser at your next gathering!
Although I love classic mojitos, I also enjoy different variations. A beautiful (and delicious) coconut rim takes these mojitos to a whole new level!
The coconut rim is totally optional, but why not? It’s so easy to do and adds more coconut flavor and tropical flare. Watch the video below to see just how easy these are to prepare!
- Honey – For rimming the glasses. Corn syrup can also be used.
- Shredded coconut – For rimming the glasses.
- Fresh mint leaves
- Lime juice – Freshly squeezed is best!
- White rum
- Coconut rum
- Pineapple Juice
- Coconut water
- Lime wheels and pineapple wedges – Optional garnishes.
Number of Servings
This recipe yields approximately 14 ounces, so it will make one good-sized mojito or two smaller ones. In the glasses in the photos, there are 7 ounces in each glass full of ice.
These are dangerously addictive; it’s hard to stop at just one. So please drink responsibly, Happy Friday and CHEERS!
