Watch this mojito recipe for how to make an amazingly refreshing Coconut Mojito – perfect to beat the heat on a hot summer day! Phoebe Lapine shows you how to make a spin on a classic Cuban cocktail to make it a little healthier.
First you’re going pour some white rum into your cup – you’re probably going to want about a 1:4 ratio of liquor to other ingredients. In the classic mojito you have a combination of fresh mint leaves, lime juice, and sugar, but to make it a little bit healthier, you’re going to use raw honey instead of sugar. Add in the fresh mint leaves (you want to tear these until into little pieces so some of the juice from the leaves start coming out to mix in well with the drink.) Then add some fresh lime juice to add the citrus flavor to it. And finally you’ll add in some coconut milk.
For the healthiest coconut mojito, you’ll want to have light coconut milk, so you get the loads of potassium, vitamins, and minerals from it without as much of the fat. Muddle everything together, add a couple of ice cubes to keep it cool and finally top it off with just a touch of seltzer water to give the drink some effervescence. And there you have it. A delicious and creamy twist on the classic mojito, HealthiNation style!
