Over the holidays I was out to dinner quite a few times, and for the most part I stuck to drinking wine, but one of the dinners was held at Victor’s Cafe in the Theater District. It’s a great Cuban restaurant, and I was in the mood for something exotic, so I ended up ordering a Coconut Mojito, and I absolutely loved it! Of course I had to make a few at home, and they were equally as delicious. Here’s is the recipe, just because I am not selfish….
What you’ll need:
- 2 oz Bacardi Coconut (or quality coconut rum of your choice)
- 2 tbsp Coco Lopez (or any cream of coconut)
- 1 oz club soda
- fresh mint leaves
- fresh lime
In a tall martini shaker muddle about 4 to 6 mint leaves. Add ice, coconut rum and cream of coconut. Shake well, the strain into to a tall slim glass filled with ice. Top off with club soda. Garnish with lime slice and/or extra mint leaves.
