I think mojitos are pretty much the perfect summer sipping drink. The lime and bubbles are refreshing, and they aren’t so strong that you need a nap after drinking one. This time I added plum, which brought beautiful color, pleasant sweetness, and a signature summer taste. My oldest son LOVES plums. I can’t keep them in the house over the summer because he can eat them so fast. He has been asking me for months if we can get plums, but they are one of those fruits that you really can’t get out of season. After a long wait, we finally got our first sweet, juicy plums in the store this week! I’ve already stocked up a couple times, and we’re out again.

I’m glad I tucked one away for these beautiful coconut mojitos. Coconut rum is not very strong but adds a fun tropical flavor to this cocktail. With the sweetness from the coconut rum and plum, I didn’t need to add sugar to these. (I did include sugar as an optional ingredient in the recipe in case you like your mojitos really sweet.) Grab your muddler, and go make what might be your signature summer cocktail!

My My!! I didn’t realize I was dealing with a wild and crazy bartender. I thought you were a food blogger. Ha. I wandered around a bit and checked out some of your other drinks. I have just gotten started the last couple of years of making some cocktails and not just having wine or port or a liqueur. I like it! This is a fun one. I am going to get some coconut rum today. I pinned this and your rootbeer one too.

Hi, Carol! I like food AND drink about equally ;) I only tried coconut rum for the first time last year, and I was an instant fan. I hope you like it too!
