WoM – Pandemic Christmas Edition: White Christmas Mojito

Posted in Mixology at 21:56 by Kathleen

December 26, third night of the Week of Mixology. Tonight we are trying a White Christmas Mojito. I was a bit doubtful about this one but it turned out okay, and it is really pretty with the garnish.

  • juice of 1 lime
  • 8 leaves mint
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoon white rum
  • 1 tablespoon coconut rum
  • ¼ cup canned unsweetened coconut milk
  • sparkling water for topping
  • pomegranate arils for serving
  • In a glass, muddle the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves until the leaves have broken down. Fill the glass half way with ice.
  • In a blender, combine the white rum, coconut rum, and coconut milk and pulse until smooth. Pour over the ice and stir to combine. Top with sparkling water, mint and pomegranate.

There is no need for a blender if you have a cocktail shaker. Given that quantities are in “cooking units” (tbsp.) rather than “cocktail units” (fl.oz.) I suspect that the author of the source is more used to cooking hence the blender than to mixing drinks. Trust me the cocktail shaker works just fine and it makes less of a mess than using a blender.

Also, “juice of one lime” is really dependent of the lime… Over time I figured that it normally means about 1 fluid once or so. Around here, that’s half a lime.

The drink is refreshing, which is a nice change from the the first two drinks of the week which were somewhat heavy due to the creaminess. With the mint and promegranate garnish the drink does win big points for prettiness.
