Foodie Friday: Frosty Coconut Mojito

The best thing for hot weather is a cool drink. I found this yummy Frosty Coconut Mojito recipe over at How Sweet Eats and I can’t wait to try it.
I can just see this drink in my right hand and a book in my left right by the ocean. I plan to give this a try soon.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup coconut rum
1/2 cup canned light coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut water
1/4 cup club soda or seltzer (I used coconut la croix)
1/2 cup mint simple syrup (recipe below)
2 limes, juiced
1/4 cup fresh mint, torn into pieces
1 1/2 cups ice, approximately

mint simple syrup
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
10 fresh mint leaves

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse until ice is crushed and mixture is combined. Add more ice if needed, then taste and add a little extra rum if desired.

mint simple syrup
Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and heat over medium heat just until it bubbles, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Turn heat down to low for 2 minutes, then remove and let sit to cool for 15 to 20 minutes.
