Not too sweet, yet refreshing, classic mojito with subtle coconut flavor is perfect on any hot summer day!Love mojito? Me too! Not too sweet, yet refreshing, it’s one of my favorite summer drinks.

Not too sweet, yet refreshing, classic mojito with subtle coconut flavor is perfect on any hot summer day!Today, I made a small twist to my classic mojito. I added a little bit of coconut rum. It adds very subtle coconut flavor to my otherwise classic mojito. If you’re not a coconut fan, no problem, just omit the coconut rum and add a little extra light rum.

For extra minty flavor, I’m using mint simple syrup, which is very easy to make. Simply throw a few mint leaves in hot simple syrup and let it steep for about 15 minutes. It really boosts the mint flavor (read: even more refreshing drink!).

Not too sweet, yet refreshing, classic mojito with subtle coconut flavor is perfect on any hot summer day!I hope you enjoyed this coconut mojito recipe. Cheers to a wonderful weekend ahead!
