Drink Up, Buttercup!

Warmer temps = patio time!! I wanted to share one of my all-time favorite drink recipes with you guys! I had this little glass of greatness for the first time this summer while in The Hamptons and was floored by how delish it was! I recommend everyone won't regret it!

Frosty Coconut Mojitos

Yield: serves 4 appropriately, 2 obnoxiously
Total Time: 20 minutes


3/4 cup coconut rum
1/2 cup canned light coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut water
1/4 cup club soda or seltzer (I used coconut la croix)
1/2 cup mint simple syrup (recipe below)
2 limes, juiced
1/4 cup fresh mint, torn into pieces
1 1/2 cups ice, approximately
mint simple syrup
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
10 fresh mint leaves


Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse until ice is crushed and mixture is combined. Add more ice if needed, then taste and add a little extra rum if desired.

mint simple syrup
Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and heat over medium heat just until it bubbles, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Turn heat down to low for 2 minutes, then remove and let sit to cool for 15 to 20 minutes.
