#DOTW: Coconut Mojito

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.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
