Hubby and I really liked this. The coconut flavor was faint. Next time I'll remove the stems from the mint sprigs and just add the leaves. Be sure to remove all the white pithe from the limes so your drinks won't be bitter.-12 Sep 2010
Love this! It reminded me of a coconut mojito I had in Belize.The recipe is great as is, but I prefer using only the juice from the limes, as the flavor is just as good and there are fewer "solids" to pick from your teeth.I used Malibu instead of regular rum, and it seemed to give the perfect balance of coconut - mint flavor.-24 Feb 2011
This is yummy. Added a bit more of the coconut to it, and since I noticed one reviewer mentioned the Wray & Nephew white rum...I remembered a bottle of this "moonshine" like rum I brought home from Jamaica, mon! I put some in....be careful with this over-proofed white rum if ya' use it. Hard to find here, though...I've only seen it in Jamaica. It's what they put in those wicked good rum punch drinks! Have fun! ;-) Thanks for the reminder, blacksnapper!!!-20 Jan 2012
Coconut Mojito Recipe
You know it&rsquos funny. I absolutely LOVE mint chocolate but when it comes to alcoholic beverages, I&rsquom not the biggest fan of mint. Mojitos have never really been my deal. That was until I tried a COCONUT mojito. Oh my heavens, they&rsquore SO good!
I&rsquom a huge coconut lover so this drink was right up my alley. Not only were they refreshing but they had a hint of sweetness, citrus, coconut, and slightly minty.
These step by step photos and instructions are here to help you visualize how to make this recipe. Please scroll down to simply print out the recipe!
- Place mint and lime in a tall glass and carefully muddle together to release the mint oils and fresh juice.
- Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Use a jigger to pour in simple syrup, rum, and cream of coconut. Shake for 20 seconds then strain into glass.
- Adjust to taste with a squeeze of fresh lime juice if you like.
- Garnish with a lime wheel and a sprig of mint. You can also add a dollop of coconut flakes on top! Serve with colorful paper straws or these cool reusable metal straws!

- Light Coconut Milk
- Seltzer or Sparkling Water. I use lime flavored seltzer, but you can use unflavored or any other flavor you like to!
- Fresh Mint Leaves
- Flakey Sea Salt (optional). I love a salt rimmed glass, but you can skip this if you don’t.
Tips for making this Coconut Mojito Mocktail:
- Use light coconut milk.
Coconut milk is solid at room temperature or colder, so when you use full fat coconut milk in this drink, it tends to be a little clumpy. The light coconut milk will mix up a lot easier!
- Double check your coconut milk ingredients!
There are a lot of sneaky ingredients sometimes added to it! I like Thai Kitchen brand (for more on compliant ingredients I like, see my Whole30 Walmart Finds post!)
Anyway, the Coconut Mojito Mocktail isn’t very sweet, but it’s bubbly, light, and hydrating. Plus it has all the delicious flavors of summer! My husband and I have spent many summer afternoons sitting on our back deck, watching the kids play, and sipping this drink. I hope you enjoy!

Coconut Mojito Cocktail Recipe
The Coconut Mojito is an absolute summer cocktail staple. It is a mouthwatering coconut, lime, and mint concoction.
It is summertime and our obsession with mojitos is at its peak. We love recreating this classic cocktail and are always looking for ways to modify it. This cocktail was inspired by one of the THIRSTY moms, she loves her coconut and her rum. Thus, the Coco-Mojito was born! This cocktail is made just like the classic mojito, the only difference is the simple syrup is replaced with REAL’S Coconut Cream. This ingredient gives this cocktail a creamy and frothy finish.
Coconut Pineapple Mojito
The secret to a truly good mojito lies within the natural flavors from the ingredients.
This means you have to extract the flavors from those ingredients, especially the mint because you can&rsquot have a mojito without mint!
The easiest way to extract those flavors is by using a muddler. A muddler is designed to mush/smash ingredients to extract natural oils and flavors. It works so well so if you don&rsquot have one, get one!
They are quite inexpensive as well, in fact, this muddler is only $6!
Here is what you need to make a delicious Coconut Pineapple Mojito:
- Fresh Coconut
- Fresh Pineapple (or pineapple juice)
- Fresh Mint
- Fresh Limes (or lime juice)
- Bacardi White Rum
- Tonic Water (you can also use club soda)
- Ice (optional)
- Tall Glass
How to make it:
Start by placing your fresh mint leaves and sugar cane syrup into the bottom of your cocktail glass and use the muddler to smash them. The more you smash them, the more flavor from the mint will come out.
Next, cut up your pineapple, lime and open your coconut. Limes should be cut into quarters (makes for easier mashing). You want to drain your coconut and save the water (you can also save time by purchasing coconut water or milk).
Place some limes into the bottom of your cocktail shaker and use your muddler again to smush the juices out of the limes.
Pour the lime juice into the cup with the mint.
Now, do the same thing with the Pineapple, place it into the shaker, mush with the muddler and pour into the glass.
Next, pour some tonic water into the glass filling it about half way.
Add some ice and finally, add your rum (as little or as much as you want but typically 1-2 shots).
Coconut water mojito
Spring may be a long way off but that doesn't mean the winter blues need to get you down. Draw yourself a warm bath, close your eyes, and take a sip of this coconut water mojito (delicious with or without alcohol) to instantly transport yourself to a tropical beach. Coconut water is rich in vitamins and minerals but palm trees are also treated liberally with pesticides meaning that your coconut water may also be rich in chemicals such as carbabmates, pyrethroids and organochlorine. When making this drink be sure to choose organic coconut water to reduce your exposure to pesticides!
Palm trees used to produce coconuts are often treated with by way of foliar sprays and trunk injections. Despite the intensive use of dangerous pesticides for coconut cultivation in South East Asia and South America, few governments have established maximum levels of pesticide residues for coconut water. A recent study published in Microchemical Journal aimed to quantify the presence of residues from these chemicals in coconut water that may be a risk to consumer health. Three different brands (not specified in the study) of coconut water from commercial markets as well as fresh coconut water were tested for pesticide residues. Researchers found residues from 19 different pesticides including carbamate, pyrethroid, and organochlorine pesticides, across all sampled coconut waters. The highest concentrations of pesticide residues were found in the three brands of coconut water compared to the fresh coconut water. The authors suspect that coconut palms grown commercially for coconut water retail are treated more heavily with chemicals to increase production.

Refreshingly Simple Coconut Mojito
Try this refreshing coconut mojito this summer. This classic mojito with subtle coconut flavor is here for you to sip on all summer long.
Not too sweet, yet refreshing, it’s one of my favorite summer drinks.
I made a teeny-tiny twist to my classic mojito. A touch of coconut rum adds subtle coconut flavor to this otherwise classic mojito.
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!).
Cheers to a wonderful weekend ahead!
