Ingredients that you’ll need to make a Creamy Coconut Mojito

  • Simple Syrup
  • Cream of Coconut
  • Mint
  • Lime Juice
  • Limes

Try Brugal, one of my favorite white Rums, for an all-around good Rum. Blue Chair Bay has a tremendous coconut-flavored rum with a hint of spice made in Barbados. I tried Blue Chair Bay first in the BVIs and haven’t purchased another brand since.

I find that the cream of coconut when first opened, has separated in the can. I usually pour it into a medium-sized plastic container and whisk it until the cream of coconut is combined and smooth.

Bar Tools

Here are some awesome products to help YOU make the most incredible drinks. Impress your family and friends and be the BEST Cocktail Barista in your neighborhood.

Need a great Cocktail Shaker but don’t know which one to buy? Look no further.

Martini or cocktail, a good shake makes all the difference in the world so buying a cocktail shaker can seriously step up your at-home drink game. Think about it: no more settling for boring mixed drinks when you can whip up bar-quality cocktails in your kitchen. It’s not just about the fancy presentation (although that’s a fun bonus) but also about how it makes mixing drinks easier and more fun. 

I have at least a dozen shakers, but one favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak; you won’t have to hit the shaker against the sink to get the top off, and the cap will measure from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces with clearly marked labels. Measure the perfect amount every time. And it is dishwasher safe!

Plus, once you get the hang of shaking, you’ll feel like a total pro, impressing your friends and yourself with your newfound bartending skills. So why not add a little shake, shake, shake to your life and upgrade your happy hour?

Citrus Juicer

Another handy bar tool is the citrus juicer. Unless you free pour and don’t measure, this citrus juicer makes measuring citrus juices like limes and lemons, a breeze.

If you like Mojitos, another handy bar tool is the muddler.

Take this drink outside and enjoy the beautiful summer weather. But don’t bring glass on the boat or near the pool. Try these 20-ounce acrylic glasses (shown below). They are perfect for any outdoor occasion. Remember to put a ‘double’ 2 portions of the Creamy Coconut Mojito in the 20-ounce glass. And add lots of ice! If you want a single serving, the 15-ounce acrylic glasses in the photo above are a better choice.
