Crazy about mojitos? This creamy Frozen Coconut Mojito recipe is laced with coconut, yet offers the limey-mint quality we know and love!
There are certain beverages I can’t wait to start sipping once the weather is warm… Margaritas, pina colada variations, boozy tiki drinks with little umbrellas, and of course mojitos.
There’s no better way to get your mind off a long tedious workweek, than to splurge on a fruity cocktail with friends.
The problem is, I can never decide which drink to go with, and I’m too much of a light-weight to handle more than one. Maybe two.
So more often than not, I opt to go with a beverage that combines the appealing attributes of multiple cocktails so I can get the biggest bang for my buck, so to speak.
Today’s Frozen Coconut Mojito is just such a beverage.
It’s essentially a mojito. Yet it’s made with coconut rum instead of white rum, then sweetened with cream of coconut instead of simple syrup.
Oh yes, then it’s blended with ice instead of poured over ice for a cool silky finish.
You get the texture and coconutty creaminess of a pina colada, with the quintessential flavor of a mojito, and little bits of fresh mint speckled throughout.
Boozy tropical heaven!
If you close your eyes while sipping, you can almost imagine your toes in the sand and gentle waves crashing in the distance.
This Frozen Coconut Mojito is a marvelous beverage to serve on girls-night-in, at a neighborhood party, or at a Sunday afternoon picnic.
If you plan to make this Frozen Coconut Mojito recipe for a crowd, make sure to buy a big bag of ice. It goes fast!
