PINEAPPLE COCONUT MOJITO RECIPE

INGREDIENTS:

  • honey
  • toasted coconut
  • 8 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 1 cup ice
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup (2 oz) white rum
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) pineapple coconut juice

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Place toasted coconut on a small plate.
  2. Rim the lip of a tall glass with honey and press into the toasted coconut. Set aside.
  3. Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into glass.
  4. Use a muddler (or bottom of  a wooden spoon) to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice.

  6. Gently stir. Garnish with extra lime, pineapple, and mint on a skewer if you’re feeling fancy!
