Because all Christmases should be white.

Or at least that’s my thinking. I’ll never fully understand you guys out there who travel to warm places for the holidays, that’s just not me. I am all about the very snowy white Christmas, and I am pretty excited because as I type this, it’s snowing! Yeah! What’s kind of odd is that while today’s drink is very white and festive, it’s actually the most tropical of all the Christmas Drink Saturday drinks yet. Guys, say hello to this creamy coconut white Christmas mojito!

Full of…

…fresh mint

…lime juice

…white rum

…coconut rum

…coconut milk

…sparkling water

…pomegranate arils (for topping – because you know I love a good garnish!)

I’m just going to put it out there that in order to love this drink, you have to love coconut because this is a very coconutty drink. I’m personally all about coconut, so the more the merrier! This drink is simple as can be, and perfect for all your holiday parties. When I made the Pomegranate Palomas a few weeks ago a lot of you were asking for the measurements to make a large batch, so today I’m giving both the measurements for a single drink and a pitcher. Yup! Just trying to make your holidays a littler easier…and apparently a little boozier too!

Here’s my quick run-down of this white Christmas mojito. This drink is creamy, fizzy and full of yummy coconut and lime flavors, basically it’s my dream drink, I just LOVE how festive and EASY it is. My brother Brendan and his girlfriend Lyndsie rolled into town Thursday night, just in time for the 5 o’clock cocktail hour, so these were their cocktail of the day. They of course loved them 1) they pretty much love anything with a little rum and 2) they are both coconut loving people…especially after their trip to Thailand. <–jealous.

It was snowing really hard (it has been all week), so these were the perfect thing to cap off a bitter cold night off. A little tropicalness in the middle of a freezing cold snowy night! Alright, so Christmas Drink Saturday #4 is a wrap…any guesses what #5 and #6 are going to be? Hint, one plays off some inspiration from my hometown Cleveland, Ohio, and the other is going to be Santa’s bestest friend. Get excited!
