Default Coconut Water Mojito

I was given some fresh mint from a friends backyard, and of course, this led to the cocktail. It was delicious!

12 oz. Collins Glass
6 mint leaves
3 half slices of lime(after rolling the lime on the cutting board)
Simple syrup to taste(I used about 1/2 oz or less)
Appleton white Rum, a good measure, say 3 -4 oz( I eye balled the amount)
Coconut Water Ice Cubes
Coconut Water

Muddle lime, mint and simple syrup(don't over muddle), add ice cubes,add rum, then coconut water. Stir well, enjoy. By using coco water ice cubes, the drink does not become diluted.
I will try this next with white agricole, and other light rums, and also a few amber rums and darker rums.

There are few things that mix better with rum than coconut water, even if it has been frozen.

Got to go make myself a drink, too bad I don't have any coconut around here.

I think we can ship some coconuts to you Ed.

Before the mid-1970s, South Florida was so full of coconut palms, we had millions of coconuts on the side of the road, surrounding the beaches, right in the front yard of the house. A palm blight disease took many trees out in 1975. There are still many coconut trees, but not millions of coconuts laying around on the ground everywhere like before.

Tropical Fruit Seasonal List

Before the government destroyed most of the citrus trees four years ago in an effort to eradicate the citrus canker, we had key limes, grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, pomelos, lemons and other varieties in many folk's yards. They're just starting to come back now and it's going to take some time to bear fruit again.

I remember as a wee young lad waking up and going out (still in my birthday suit) to pick a grapefruit from the tree in my aunt's yard for breakfast. It was sooo good. Ah back in the day...
Cheers. - S

Robert, you are bringing back many great memories from when I was a kid.
My grandmother lived in Miami, and we'd spend the summers down there with her, and occasionally we'd go out to Key Biscayne and stay for days on end at the Silver Sands Motel.

I remember the coconuts everywhere on the ground!!!

My grandmother's house was one of those with the lime, orange, banana and other fruit bearing trees in the yard.

Those were fun times.

I have purchased both Graces Coconut Water and Vita CoCo, and some of the Vita CoCo comes flavored. I enjoy the one with pineapple. The Coconut water ice cubes really bring out more flavor in drinks.

Yesterday I substituted Appleton V/X for the Appleton White, and it was delicious. A larger profile of flavors. Today, I think it will be time for agricole.
Tiare's Mojito was much more pleasing to the eye then mine, she is quite the artist.

wish I had the weblink to her flickr page at the moment... Tiare has a LOT of really mouthwatering drinks that she has made - like fine art coming from the end of a paintbrush!!!

Those pictures would inspire one to drink!
