That title is intriguing isn’t it? This recipe was inspired by a drink that we had at the Tipsy Tuna in Placencia, Belize. It was by far both mine and Andy’s favorite cocktail on our vacation.
Mojitos have been my go-to tropical drink for the past few years now. They are light, refreshing, and many times have some fresh fruit added too. I’ve tried to find the perfect Mojito in Costa Rica, Cancun, Puerto Rico, and Belize. Wow, that’s a whole lot of Mojito trying!
So to commemorate the long weekend, our new house, and a sunset view, Andy and I decided to attempt our own Mojito recipe last weekend! The best part is that we used all paleo friendly ingredients so this home made version isn’t even considered a “cheat.”
I hope you enjoy!
Paleo Friendly Coconut Basil Mojito (TWEET THIS)
- 1 Lime, cut in to wedges
- 1/4 Tsp Coconut Sugar
- Baby Basil
- 1 Part Bacardi Superior
- 1 Part Coconut Water
- 1 Splash Club Soda
- Ice Cubes
Take a lime wedge and sugar and put into a tall glass. Muddle together until it looks syrupy. Add mint and basil on top and muddle again to release aromas of the herbs. Now fill the entire glass with ice. First pour your Bacardi and then coconut water. Top with club soda.
This Mojito is the absolute perfect summer cocktail!
