I call this a Cocojito. It combines your classic Mojito with coconut rum. It’s delicious, and your guests will be begging for more.
To prepare the mint simple syrup, add 2 cups sugar, 2 cups water and mint sprigs to a medium pot. Bring to a boil. Once it boils, remove from heat and set aside and let the syrup cool slightly, about 30 minutes.
While the syrup is cooling, juice the limes. I used about 11 limes to get enough juice. Once the limes are juiced, pour the juice into a bowl through a sieve to get out any pulp (if you like pulp, you can skip this step). Pour lime juice and rum into a large pitcher. Once the syrup is cool, pour the syrup through the sieve into the same bowl, disposing of the mint sprigs. Add 2 1/2 cups of the mint simple syrup to the pitcher with the rum and lime juice. Stir. Place the mixture in the fridge and let it cool completely. The mixture in the pitcher is a concentrated version of the cocktail.
Once the rum mixture is completely cool, add the chilled club soda. You’ll want to do this right before serving the cocktail so the club soda doesn’t go flat. One pitcher of cocojito mix takes about a liter and a half of club soda. Add a little at a time, tasting after each addition. Everyone’s taste is different, so add the club soda until it suites your taste. Enjoy!
