My son just about has his first full week as a high school senior in the books, we have made it through his first cross country meet of the season, and Little Miss's first full day of Pre-K went on without a hitch. I think those are all reasons enough to celebrate with a little cocktail this weekend- don't you all think? ;) 

And even though we are in full-on back to school mode here, the humid temps outside are reminding me to not give up on summertime altogether quite yet. There is still time for sipping on a tropical cocktail on the back deck. Still time for backyard BBQ's, and s'mores by the fire pit, and sunset watching. 
Yes, I have accepted the fact that the school year has officially begun, but I am not ready to let go of summer just yet. Who else is with me on this? If you are, then whip up one of these refreshing Coconut Key Lime Mojitos & raise a glass with me this weekend, okay? 

Here's to squeezing out just a little more summer from the next couple of weekends.
Here's to a new school year (and some long overdue peace & quiet for the work-at-home & stay-at-home parents out there- can I get an amen? ;) ).
Here's to the perfect flavor combination of creamy coconut & tart key lime in a boozy cocktail.

I have to be perfectly honest with you all- though I have whipped up many the mojito in my adulthood, this Coconut Key Lime Mojito just might be my absolute favorite mojito concoction to date. The sweet coconut water & rum pairs perfectly with the refreshing mint and the tart key lime making this mojito the perfect end of summer cocktail. :) I found that this mojito had the perfect amount of sweetness for me as is, but feel free to add in a splash of simple syrup if you prefer it a little sweeter.
