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!
A beautiful coconut rim takes these mojitos over the top. It’s so easy to do and adds more coconut flavor and tropical flare. Speaking of tropical, one of the reasons I wanted to create this cocktail is to remind myself that spring is on the way. It has been one heck of a cold, dreary winter around here! These definitely lifted my spirits to say the least!
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!
