Stephen's Coconut Mojito

Print Friendly and PDF
Very refreshing!  My son, Steve, made these for a family dinner, and they were a bit hit.  They have a tropical taste, are slightly sweet from the coconut milk and have the consistency of a frozen marguerita.  This recipe makes 2 servings. 

4 cups ice cubes
2-1/2 limes, rind removed
7 oz sweetened cream of coconut (I used coconut milk)
2-1/2 jiggers Bacardi white rum (a jigger = 1.5 fluid ounce)
5 sprigs fresh mint leaves
Additional mint leaves and lime wedges for garnish (optional)

Remove the rind from the limes.  Blend the ice, limes, coconut milk, rum and mint leaves in a blender until smooth.  Pour into two glasses, garnish with mint sprig and lime wedge if desired.

This drink was made especially for cousin Patti, pictured here with her husband Cliff, who were visiting from Seattle.
