Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 + 1/4 ounces lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 + 1/2 tablespoon mint leaves, lightly packed
  • 1 cup crushed ice (or 1-1/4 cups ice cubes)
  • 3 ounces Malibu
  • 4.5 ounces coconut cream
  • 1/3 cup club soda
  • Rimming: simple syrup and sweetened shredded coconut
  • Garnishes: shredded coconut, slice of lime, sprig of fresh mint

Instructions

  1. Rim a cocktail glass by dipping the rim into a small saucer filled with simple syrup. Dip the wet rim into another saucer filled with shredded coconut. Put the glass aside.
  2. Add granulated sugar, lime juice and mint leaves to a different glass. Lightly muddle the mint a few times just until you can smell the mint. Do not over-muddle the mint, or press down hard when muddling, or your mojito will have a bitter taste!
  3. Add crushed ice to a drink shaker. Add the muddled mixture on top. Add the Malibu and coconut cream. Put the lid on and shake, shake, shake! Immediately pour the coconut mojito into a rimmed cocktail glass.
  4. Add the club soda on top of the drink and briefly swizzle with a bar spoon.
  5. Garnish with a slice of lime and sprig of mint. Sprinkle the top of the drink with shredded coconut. Drink responsibly. Enjoy!
