Coconut Mojito

Bright and refreshing, a mojito is the ideal summertime cocktail. But as they say, there's more than one way to skin a cat! By simply swapping out light rum with a flavored rum, you can add a new dimension to this summertime sparkler.

We've made this Coconut Mojito with Sugar Island Coconut Rum. Made with only natural coconut flavors, it's slightly sweet with a flavor that's not too overpowering. We added a little extra boost of flavor with Eli Mason Mint Julep syrup.

 

equipment:

cocktail shaker
muddler
highball glass

ingredients:

2 oz Sugar Island Coconut Rum
.5 oz Eli Mason Mint Julep Syrup
8-10 fresh mint leaves

Cut the 1/2 fresh lime into pieces. In the bottom of your cocktail shaker, muddle mint leaves and lime to release flavors. Add rum and mint syrup before filling with ice and shaking well. Add seltzer and transfer contents into highball glass. Garnish with fresh mint sprig and lime wedge.
