I kind of love making cocktails for the blog.  I usually just make one serving (sometimes two…) and after a rigorous photo shoot I get a little me time with my awesome cocktail. I am especially in love with this one. It’s a twist on a coconut mojito.  I substituted cilantro for the mint and got rid of all the extra steps.

This cocktail features a lot of my favorite flavors in a super easy to make cocktail. No muddling. No straining. Just stir and enjoy.  I know a lot of people aren’t crazy about cilantro.

You could leave it out or replace it with mint (pretty much making this a mojito).  I personally love cilantro and although it’s not a prominent flavor in this drink, it adds a refreshing kick at the end of each sip.

The cilantro definitely adds a Latin flair to this drink and would go perfectly with Mexican cuisine. If you’re still looking for that perfect drink for Cinco de Mayo or perhaps a summer barbecue, this cocktail is definitely the way to go. Easy on the eyes – cool and refreshing on the palate.
