Get your cocktail shakers out, trim some spearmint sprigs and slice up some lemons because it’s time for a delicious Coconut Raspberry Mojito!
Coconut Raspberry Mojito
Valentine´s Day is just around the corner, which means I’m getting into full romantic planning mode. Pink cocktails, delicious dinners for 2 and indulgent desserts are all I can think of right now so if you are on the same bandwagon as me this is the perfect cocktail for you.
But you know what? If you are not on the same romantic heart shaped everything bandwagon this is also for you as well. Why? Because this is delicious. Period.
This is just a bit sparkly, super tropical, incredibly refreshing and did I say oh so beautiful? I mean just look at those bright pinks, greens and yellow, this cocktail is begging to be photographed and shared on Instagram (or you know…just bragged with friends).
But the bright colors and intense flavor are not the only things that I love about this. I mean this cocktail is really easy to shake and serve so you can look like a total profesh cocktail shaker without having to do a ton of work.
The process has 2 steps and both of them are what give this so much zing. The first one is the muddling. You basically muddle (or smash) the raspberries, with the spearmint, lemon, and some sugar. The second step is the shaking – best step in my opinion – when you just add some rum and coconut water to a cocktail shaker along with ice and shake shake shake. Then it’s just a matter of pouring in the glass and topping with some sparkling water.
This is the perfect cocktail to enjoy with some chips and guac or with a fancy appetizer like bruschettas so you can pair it with all the delicious treats you have planned for Valentine’s Day.
