Because all Christmases should be white.

White Christmas Mojito | halfbakedharvest.com @hbharvest

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!

    This drink is absolutely delicious and beautiful!!! I am serving it Christmas Eve but I made a trial run tonight!! Amazing!!! What a perfect drink. I love mojito sand adding the coconut milk tops it off perfectly!!! Thanks Tieghan for another amazing recipe!!

  2. Can’t wait to try this one. On our honeymoon in Kauai, the hotel we stayed at had a frozen coconut mojito and I am curious to see how this one compares 😆 I have not seen a recipe for one with coconut yet!

    I made this Christmas Mojito for an overnight guest, and it was festive, beautiful, and so tasty. I made it again the next night for my husband and me. This is definitely going to be a holiday tradition.

    Currently sipping on this absolutely delish cocktail and so happy I came across this recipe! I’m from PR so I grew up on virgin piña coladas and as an adult enjoy the boozy version, along with Mojitos. So needless to say this drink is the perfect marriage of two of my favorites.

    1. Hey Kim,
      I like canned coconut milk. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! Happy Holidays! xTieghan

    So yummy! Mojitos are one of my favorite drinks and this one is so perfect for Christmas! I host an annual ornament exchange and can’t wait to serve my guests this drink.

  6. 5 stars
    I am so excited to have this wonderful recipe. My kids would love it. Thanks for making such a good festive drink.

  7. What would you suggest in place of coconut milk? I’m making for a crowd and not everyone loves coconut as much as I do!

    1. HI! I would use half and half, whole milk, or a very creamy almond or cashew milk. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you and happy holidays! xTieghan

  8. The picture of the cocktail does not have that foamy coconut look to it like mine did. Is there anything you did to make it not have so much foam from the coconut milk?

    1. HI! Mine has foam in the beginning, but fads away after it sits a few minutes. We don’t normally notcie it. Unfortunately when using canned coconut milk you will get a bit of foam. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you and happy holidays! xTieghan

    It is Christmas Eve and I am drinking one right now, exactly as directed. Beautiful and delicious! Very coconutty, yet refreshing with the mint, lime and sparkling water. The pomegranate is very beautiful as well. I can’t say that I am practiced at mixing drinks but the measurements here are perfect and simple. Merry Christmas!

    Was a HUGE hit this holiday season with my family. I used more lime, and a cup of each rum and 1/4 more coconut milk than called for in the recipe. Made the mint and sugar lime mix early and let it really macerate, then strained the mint leaves out and mixed all ingredients together (minus seltzer) in blender then server in chilled tumblers (four ice cubes each), adding seltzer and mint with pomegranate arils for decoration. 🙂 loved it!

    I made your White Christmas Mojito Punch (didn’t use sugar, though), and that was great.Your styling and photography are quite lovely.

  13. Can you do either the white rum OR coconut rum, and not the other?
    Or does it make it too sweet and/or not enough “coconutty”?

    1. HI! I recommend using just the white rum if you would only like to use 1 rum. That will be great! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much!! xTieghan ?

  14. I am planning to make this virgin because I’m pregnant. Since I will be eliminating so much liquid, what can I substitute to prevent it from becoming too thick? Thanks so much-can’t wait to try this!!

    1. Hey Tara! I recommend subbing with more sparkling water. That will be just great! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much!! xTieghan ?

    This looks delicious! I love coconut and mojitos are my jam!!! What brand/type of coconut milk do you recommend? Is the kind that’s used to make pina coladas good or do you use something else?

    1. I like to use Thai Kitchens coconut milk. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much!! xTieghan ?

    1. I used La Croix sparking water. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much!! xTieghan ?

    1. Yes, that should be great! Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Happy Holiday’s 🙂

  16. The flavor is delicious but the coconut milk gets curdled when I pour it over ice. Is there any way to prevent this?

    1. HI! What brand coconut milk are you using? I have found brands to vary. I use Thai Kitchens. Also, sometimes the thickness of the milk can be to blame. You can try using a carton of refrigerated coconut milk, which will be smoother in texture. Please let me know if you have other questions. Happy Holidays ? 🙂

    1. These are from Anthropologie, but I bought them last year and I dont believe they carry them anymore. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Happy Holiday’s ? 🙂

    1. Yes, of course! You don’t need to replace the rum with anything, just simply leave it out. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Happy Holiday’s ? 🙂

    Hello! I am throwing an Xmas Party next weekend. I will be having self served beverage dispenser that holds 1.75 gallons. How can I make this recipe in a larger amount. If you could help me with the recipe to fit for 1.75 gallons I’d great appreciate it.

    1. Hi Crystal. I tried to measure this out for you, but I am not exactly sure they are correct. I used an online calculator, but I would double check the measurements as well.

      4.6 cups lime juice
      1.2 cups mint leaves
      1.2 cups sugar
      2.3 cups white rum
      1.2-2.3 cups coconut rum
      4.6 cups coconut milk

      I hope this helps you out. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    1. Of course! Just be sure to add the sparkling water right before serving. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! :

    1. Hi! I use Malibu Coconut rum and Bacardi. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Happy Thanksgiving! ?

  18. Tried to make these twice–wonderful flavor, but how do you keep the coconut milk from getting hard? Mine gets cold from the ice and then lumps up, even tried putting it in a blender. Do you know what I’m doing wrong? I want them to look pretty like yours, but there are chunks of hardened coconut milk/oil floating around in the glass.

    1. Hey Leah! Ugh, it sound like you just have REALLY thick coconut milk. Try using coconut milk that comes in a carton. This should solve the problem. Sorry for any trouble!

        Hi!!! Love this recipe and waiting to make it this year for Christmas. I wanted to know what brand did you use for the coconut rum and the white rum.
        Thank you

      2. Maybe it was cream of coconut….this happens to me with a punch that calls for it. The punch is delicious, but isn’t very pretty.

  19. It was delicious!! My kind of mojito!! I couldn’t wait to have another glass!! Looking forward to more of these with my family! Thank you!!?????

  20. Enjoying this very moment! Thank you and Merry Christmas! And PS – my fam is from Ohio…Huron and Sandusky! Yay Cleveland teams and Cedar Point! ??

  21. Okay, so I’m a little bit obsessed with these. Coconut + mojito = everything I love about a cocktail. So good!

  22. This is SO delicious! It’s like if a piña colada and mojito had a baby. A delicious minty limey coconutty baby.

  23. My friend made these over the weekend, and they were so delicious! She doubled the alcohol, and they were still amazing. This will be on my rotation of holiday drinks now

  24. Do you have extra room in your barn? I might need to move in. Sipping weekly cocktails and playing with all your gorgeous Christmas-y props might be all I need in life. Except chocolate, which I know you have plenty of. 🙂

  25. Oh my! Love these mojitos! I absolutely agree with you that Christmas should be white! I am a bit jealous of your snow situation 🙂 – wish it was snowing around here!

  26. I love all things coconut, so this is my kind of drink! I love how you’ve managed to create something that looks so festive and is full or warm tropical flavours at the same time 🙂

  27. This looks amazing! I’m loving the cocktail Saturday posts and think this should continue into the new year. Making cocktail (Or even just beverage) Saturdays a standing thing would be fun and a way to be creative in a slightly different way.

  28. This looks amazing! I love all things coconut! This drink is like a cousin of my classic coquito. I’ve got to try this. And your photos….yeah, I’m a bit obsessed haha! “Put a lime in my coconut….and mix it all up” -now I have Practical Magic on my mind haha.

  29. Is it weird that I get super excited whenever you post a vegan recipe?! I’m actually in love with this mojito, nbd. 😉

  30. Hi … this recipe looks awesome, but seeing as though I missed the measurements for the large batch of “White Christmas Mojito”, would you mind awfully, giving me that recipe, as I think that I will be wanting more than one : )
    Thank you so much !

    1. Hey Linda! The measurements for the large batch are just below the single drink. Do you see them? If not, let me know! hope you love this and Merry Christmas! Thanks!

  31. This old so perfect for winter! I can just picture how amazing this cocktail would be at parties!

  32. This is my kind of drink!!!
    I love coconut in every possible way.
    Another wonderful festive drink!
    Salud!

  33. My hometown still IS Cleveland, Ohio 🙂 Happy to say it’s definitely going to be a white Christmas here – tons of snow already. Fabulously festive drink recipe!
