Hubby and I really liked this. The coconut flavor was faint. Next time I'll remove the stems from the mint sprigs and just add the leaves. Be sure to remove all the white pithe from the limes so your drinks won't be bitter.

Love this! It reminded me of a coconut mojito I had in Belize. The recipe is great as is but I prefer using only the juice from the limes as the flavor is just as good and there are fewer "solids" to pick from your teeth. I used Malibu instead of regular rum and it seemed to give the perfect balance of coconut - mint flavor.
This is yummy. Added a bit more of the coconut to it, and since I noticed one reviewer mentioned the Wray & Nephew white rum...I remembered a bottle of this "moonshine" like rum I brought home from Jamaica, mon! I put some in....be careful with this over-proofed white rum if ya' use it. Hard to find here, though...I've only seen it in Jamaica. It's what they put in those wicked good rum punch drinks! Have fun! ;-) Thanks for the reminder, blacksnapper!!!
I loved this recipe and I am sure it is even more great with the proper ingredients however I did not have all the ingredients so I tweeked it a little.....I used 4 cups of ice 1/3 cup frozen limeade concentrate 7 ounces Cream of Coconut 3 1/2 oz. coconut rum 1/3 cup Creme de Mint......it was delicious..............
I made these for my girlfriend & I and we both loved it! I used coconut flavored rum and just the juice of two limes. You can find the Coco Lopez at Walmart Super-centers, Super Target stores, Jewel, Big Lots and many others. There's a list of stores that carry it on cocolopez.com...It comes in regular and lite! I couldn't find it at my local grocery store the first time I made this and used a different brand, but noticed after I found the Coco Lopez that even the regular has less than half the calaries, sugar and fat than the brand that I bought the first time...and it's cheaper!! :)
