Ingredients Needed

Only a few ingredients are needed for these refreshing coconut mojito with pineapple. You will also need a tall highball glass, I love these tall ribbed glasses. Scroll down to the recipe card for exact amounts.

  • Honey: For rimming the cocktail glass.
  • Toasted Coconut: Shredded coconut is tasty and festive for the rim. Toast your shredded coconut by cooking it in a dry skillet over medium-low heat until golden brown. Cool before using.
  • Mint: Fresh mint leaves are available in the produce section of most grocery stores year-round.
  • Ice
  • Limes: You will need both lime wedges and fresh lime juice.
  • Rum: Choose a good quality, white rum. Coconut rum would be delicious to add even more coconut flavor.
  • Coconut Pineapple Juice: Find a coconut and pineapple juice in the jarred juice section of most big grocery stores. (See tips section below for substitutions, if needed.)

How to Make Pineapple Mojitos with Coconut

This delightfully refreshing pineapple mojito recipe requires no cocktail shaker or special bartender knowledge to whip up. A little elbow grease for muddling is all you need! Scroll to the recipe card at bottom of the post for full detailed instructions.

  • Coconut Rim: Coat the top of a tall glass with honey and press it into toasted coconut.
  • Muddle: Add the mint leaves and a lime wedge into the garnished glass. Use the end of a wooden spoon, or a muddler, to press the mint and lime to release the oils.
  • Fill: Add ice till glass is about 3/4 full and then pour in the lime and rum. Top with pineapple and coconut juice and stir to combine.
  • Garnish: Add a fresh garnish of pineapple chunks, lime and mint leaves to make it extra festive. Serve immediately!

Chef’s Tips and Variations

  • Make it Sweeter: Pineapple coconut juice is naturally sweet, but you could add a splash of simple syrup if preferred. Too sweet? Add club soda or coconut water for part of the pineapple coconut juice.
  • Non-Alcoholic: Eliminate the rum and top the juices with a little lemon-lime or pineapple soda.
  • Coconut Pineapple Juice: If you can’t find it locally, make your own by mixing 50% pineapple juice and 50% coconut water.
  • Creamy: While mojitos are not traditionally creamy, I have added a splash of coconut cream (from the top of a can of coconut milk) to add a creaminess.

Make a Large Batch for Parties

Want to make these fruity mojitos for a party? You can even make them ahead! Here’s how:

  • Muddle: Use a large pitcher and muddle the mint and lime together for 6 to 8 mojitos.
  • Combine: Do not add ice, instead add all other ingredients and give the pitcher a good stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 24 hours.
  • Serve: When ready to serve, give everything a good stir and pour into glasses filled with ice.

      Hi Kathy! The brand I found was Knudsen Juice in a glass jar. Upon googling it though, there are a lot of brands that make it! I found it in the non refrigerated juice aisle. Hope this helps! 

Thank You For Being Here!
