Cocktail O’Clock: Mango Coconut Mojito

Posted by on June 6 2012 in Drinks, Recipe

I am not, nor have I ever been, a bartender.  I love mixed drinks, though.  And I’m super cheap, so I would much rather make drinks at home than pay upwards of $8 a glass on a super-sugary and not-alcoholic-enough drink.

Now, I promised myself a while back that I would not buy any more coconut rum because it’s too easy to consume in mass quantities and regret it later.  Buuuttt…I guess I break promises.

So, here’s a tropical drink to rock your socks.

Coconut Mango Mojito

makes 1 refreshing beverage

8 mint leaves
juice of 1/2 a lime
2-3 shots coconut rum (if coconut is not your jam, regular rum would be good instead)
flesh of half a mango
2 handfuls of ice
Sprite Zero

Throw all except for Sprite in a blender and blend.  Strain into a glass with lime slices and discard pulp. Top with Sprite Zero.

Oh, my reason for using Sprite Zero is based on my love for a skinny cocktail.  If you are not into it, feel free to use something sugary (although the mango is plenty sweet).

I will now describe this drink to you in three words: coconut-y, fresh and rum-y.

    I don’t understand why there is no print icon for these recipes. I don’t use facebook, pininterest or any other thing like that. I rely on a print icon and it makes me crazy when a recipe is posted without one. If you post a recipe then you are putting it out there for people to use, right?

    Hi, Susan. You could copy and paste the recipe into a word doc and print it out or highlight the text and choose “print selection.” That’s how I usually do it ;)
