Summertime Cocktail — Coconut Mojito

summer in a glassI follow Coastal Living magazine’s Instagram feed.  They featured the yummiest cocktail for a Coconut Mojito that I had to try.

It tastes like a suntan in a glass.  Remember the days when Pina Coladas were all the rage?  Well, this is her younger, hipper sister’s drink.

Here’s the link to the recipe at Coastal Living where this liquid treasure and other fun cocktail recipes can be found.  I’ve provided the recipe from their site below.
