One of the things that surprised me about Cabo San Lucas was the love of the Mojito.
From Raspberry Mojitos to Mango Mojitos, restaurants and bars bragged about their versions of the minty cocktail. So naturally – I had to try them.
I tasted coconut mojitos, pineapple mojitos, cumcumber mojitos. I sipped on Mojitos made with rum and Mojitos made with Mexican tequila. All of them were delicious.
While summer might be ending (no! never!), there’s still plenty of time (all year!) to try some of these refreshing flavored Mojitos.
I’ve gathered a Cocunut recipe from Nikki Beach and a Pineapple one from the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica for your refreshment this Labor Day weekend. Enjoy!
5 slices of lime
1 teaspoon of brown sugar
10 mint leaves
1 and half onces of white rum
2 ounces of coconut cream.
Muddle these ingredients in a tall glass and fill the glass with ice. Add white rum and coconut cream. Using a shaker, mix the ingredients and with mineral water to fill the glass.
