Pair your holiday mojito with this wreath charcuterie board. Also your kids will enjoy this fun Grinch punch, bright colored and the classic red heart trademark. 

What makes a drink a mojito? 

Mojitos are a delicious and unique cocktail that is made with white rum, lime juice, sugar and more. Now this Christmas version will use coconut milk and pomegranate for a fun Christmas look. 

Ingredients Needed 

Lime Juice – I do recommend using fresh lime juice for this drink. You will find bottled lime doesn’t always have the fresh taste, and can taste a bit artificial. 

Mint – You will want to use fresh mint sprigs for garnishing the mojito. 

Sugar – Granulated sugar is going to help balance out the sweet and citrus components of this drink. 

Rum – White rum works best for this Christmas cocktail recipe. You will find that spiced can change up the flavor and leave a different flavor. 

Coconut Milk – The coconut milk gives this drink a gorgeous white color. Plus it is creamy and refreshing and compliments the lime and pomegranate.

Pomegranate – You will use the pomegranate to garnish! Feel free to eat the pomegranate as you sip on your drink as well.

How to Make This White Christmas Mojito 

Step One: First step is to muddle your mint leaves in the glass. Then add ice into the glass. 

Step Two: In a shaker add ice, lime juice, coconut milk, sugar, and rum. Shake well to incorporate all your ingredients. 

Step Three: Pour over the ice, and garnish with pomegranate and a few mint leaves. 

What does it mean to muddle? 

Muddle is used as a term when making cocktails and drinks. Place your mint leaves, or even fruits in the bottom of a glass and use the back of a spoon and press on the leaves to release the oils from the leaves. 

You can buy a muddle tool which is great if you are a fan of making drinks. 

What if I don’t have a shaker for mixing drink? 

Place the ingredients in a mason jar, sealing the lid and then shake. Or you can use a glass and place a second glass to cup it, so you can shake the mixture without spilling.

Variations to Recipe 

Here are a few changes and tips for success when it comes to make this refreshing and winter themed drink. 

  • Swap out the pomegranates with cranberries. 
  • Use a sweetener of choice instead of granulated sugar. 
  • Feel free to add in an extra shot of rum to make a stronger drink. 
  • Make a pitcher of this drink, and pour and serve for a holiday party or gathering. 

Can I make this mojito in advance? 

I recommend making it right before serving. You will find that the flavor of the drink is best freshly poured. You will find pre-mixing ahead of time can alter all the flavors and you won’t have the same flavoring.
