You put the lime in the coconut & shake it all up! In this case, you add some pineapple too and go all tropical with a Pineapple Coconut Mojito.

Doesn’t that sound like just what you need as summer rolls around and the temperatures soar? I don’t know about you but in South Florida that time has arrived and this drink just hits the spot!

If you’ve never tried a mojito, a Cuban rum drink that is made with lots of lime, sugar and mint, then you are really missing out. Here in South Florida, with our large Cuban population, it is a standard almost anywhere you go but now is your chance to give a similar drink a try at home. I love making my Cucumber Mojito, sweetened with just a little agave, but this drink puts the tropical in mojito. It is naturally sweetened with pineapple juice instead of sugar and adds the yummy flavor of coconut to the mix.

    We made it — I think it needs more coconut and/or pineapple juice. We added a bit more. Perhaps a splash of Malibu…?

      I think whatever flavor you like more you can add to this. We like ours light and refreshing like they serve in the Florida Keys but I think an extra splash of Malibu would be real tasty.
