If you’ve been following me, I’ve been on a
mojito marathon recently.
I made this Coconut Mojito for Big Daddy…………………….. bahahahahahaha!!!! That’s so funny, because Big Daddy is (almost) strictly a bourbon man. No sweetsy, cutesy drinks for him….except that one time at Pompano Joe’s when he was “craving” (I use that term loosely) a Strawberry daiquiri… he asked the waiter to put it in a plastic cup with no cool whip or garnish. He almost got away with it until Lincoln said, “Daddy, that looks like stwah-bew-wy ice cweam!!” er, BUSTED!
However, my favorite cocktails are sweetsy, cutesy drinks complete with a little umbrella! I particularly enjoy a Mojito, all minty and fresh. My mint is going nuts this year and I have to use it, I mean, I can’t just let it flourish and not use it!! Enter Coconut Mojito! Yeah baby! If you like coconut and you like mint, you’ll like this. It’s kind of like a pina colada, but not, it’s lighter….just try it for yourself!
