A Seven Jars Special Recipe
This quick and easy variation on the Mojito uses Seven Jars Rum and natural coconut flavours to bring out a true tropical taste! We dare you to try one of these and not picture yourself on a beautiful island beach! BTW, the first question we always get here is “What is the difference between Coconut Milk and Coconut Water?” The short answer is coconut milk is processed from the “meat” of a coconut. Coconut “water” is the liquid contained in a green coconut; it is high in potassium and considered by some to be a healthy drink. Coconut milk is actually comprised of coconut cream and coconut water, and may separate out at cooler temperatures. Properly mixed, coconut milk is thicker in texture and actually has a different flavour than coconut water; it is also higher in fat, although it is made up of medium chain triglycerides (in other words NOT animal fat) and therefore some argue that it is actually good for you. SO, you have the best of everything!!
- 2 oz Seven Jars Rum
