Pineapple Coconut Mojito

These Pineapple Coconut Mojitos are so gorgeous and really make happy hour happy!! I am so very excited to be sharing this new drink with y’all.

If you are not a fan of coconut, you can use straight pineapple juice. Also, if you like your cocktails to be lightly flavored, you can use half juice and half club soda.

Don’t skip the honey and toasted coconut rim! It’s as festive as it is tasty!

This Pineapple Coconut Mojito is the perfect Summer cocktail to enjoy as you sit on the porch watching your kids run wild…while pretending they belong to the neighbor. 😉

Make a single glass or an entire pitcher by quadrupling the recipe. Either way, it’s going to be a delicious happy hour! Cheers, friends!


Ingredients:


  • honey
  • toasted coconut
  • 8 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup (2 oz) white rum
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) pineapple coconut juice


Instructions:


  1. Place toasted coconut on a small plate.
  2. Rim the lip of a tall glass with honey and press into the toasted coconut. Set aside.
  3. Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into glass.
  4. Use a muddler (or bottom of a wooden spoon) to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice.
  5. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the lime juice and rum over the ice. Top it off with pineapple coconut juice.
  6. Gently stir. Garnish with extra lime, pineapple, and mint on a skewer if you’re feeling fancy!
