Also, the funny thing is, I (having never seen this post... i swear!) was all day planning to make coconut water mojitos (thinking they were my own invention, but as I was leaving work, I saw that we had some Schweppes Bitter Lemon so I got distracted and made this instead:

10 -12 Mint leaves, lightly muddled
4 Shots Ron Botran 5 yr Oro Anejo
3.5 Oz Schweppes Bitter Lemon
Fill with ice

I had 5.
Tasty. I will do the Mojitos this afternoon, and I am sure they will be better.

P.S. coconut ice cubes, you guys kill me. . .

OK, y'all got me! I'm mixing up one now. I'm going to use the Ron Botran Blanca and Vita Coco. Thanks, Forrest for the tip on the Botran Blanca, and the Gold. Sampled both last night and, for the price($14.99 for 1.75L at HiTimes), great deal, tasty rum.

Used Neisson Rhum agricole blanc, then the ESB amber today. Really like the blanc in this cocktail, it adds even more to the flavor profile. also, using Petite Canne syrup instead of simple is a great touch.

A bottled water outfit called Metro Mint makes a nice spearmint water and a lemon water.

I've dropped an ice cube each in with my vita coco cubes and... nice!

That sounds refreshing forrest, but the "4 Shots" of rum might require scaling down if your shots are 1 oz or more.

BTW Coconut water ice cubes are now as indispensable as Ting. Of the two waters tried so far, the O.N.E. brand was decidedly fresher tasting than Zico.

Just a standard shot (1 3/4 oz) .
I would scale it if I was making it for someone else.

The cocnut water Mojito was good, I had a few.

I salute your iron constitution. Pardon my curiosity, but your recipe calls for 7 oz of rum; am I missing something? With five drinks that would total 35 oz of rum, over a quart.. That seems a good bit over the top by most cocktail standards. All three Zombie recipes from Beachbum Berry's latest have less than 5 oz of rum, even considering each 151 oz as 2 oz. Isn't the Zombie considered a pretty stiff drink?

200ml of alcohol in each drink! And you had five? That's a bottle and a half of liquor. Good work my friend!!

I might scale down the rum if I was tweaking that recipe for myself but I may have misread your scale......

Paul you are nothing of the sort, I just misread some lines.

You guys had me doubting myself so I went and checked the measure I used, it worked out to be 3 1/2 oz, sorry for the mis-statement.

so as a real measured recipe the drink would look like this:

10 -12 Mint Leaves muddled
3 1/2 oz Rum
3 1/2 oz Bitter Lemon
Ice

Honestly though the drink was alright, nothing special, just refreshing.
