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.

Citrus Juicer
Citrus Juicer

First, you’ll need a muddler to mash your fruit and mint leaves. For freshly squeezed lime juice, try this small juicer. You’ll have the exact measurement every time. Last but not least, a cocktail shaker. You can only have a perfect cocktail with a great shake.

Best Ever Economical Cocktail Shaker

You can’t mix a great martini without a great shaker. 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!

Outdoor Bar Setup

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 Jolly Rancher 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.

How to make a Creamy Coconut Mojito

Muddle the mint leaves, lime wedges, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker long enough to release the minty flavor, about 15 seconds. Add the coconut water, cream of coconut, white Rum, coconut Rum, and lime juice to the shaker. Shake to combine.

Fill the glasses with ice, then pour in the strained liquid, dividing evenly. Top with club soda and stir. Garnish with mint leaves.
