So I will just be honest right away. Mojito iced coffee does not sound appealing really at all unless you are a die hard mojito lover like me… Then maybe you would consider trying it.
I found this recipe on Pinterest and immediately it sparked my interest and went straight to the top of my to-do list.
This is super easy to make, it just takes a tad more time than your normal coffee, but it is an interesting twist on your everyday, classic cup of joe.
- 8 mint leaves
- 1 tablespoon raw cane sugar (or some sweetener)
- 1 cup brewed coffee
- 1-2 splash non-fat milk – you can use whole milk, half and half if you like your coffee creamier (I used almond milk)
- ice cubes (I put my coffee in the freezer for 15 minutes or so, so the coffee wouldn’t get watery from the ice. You could also create milk ice cubes or coffee ice cubes to avoid this problem!)
- Brew your coffee (kind of self explanatory) (I used my kuerig)
- In a separate glass add your mint and your sugar. You will then use a back of a spoon or a muddler (I used a spoon) to mash/muddle the mint and sugar together. You do not want to crush up the mint so much that it is a paste. The purpose is to get the mint oils out to bring in the “mojito vibe”.
- If you do not muddle then you will not get the mint flavor
- Pour your coffee overtop and stir until sugar is dissolved
- Add milk and ice cubes, stir again
- Garnish if you want with a sprig or leaf of mint

I wouldn’t consider this my “go-to” or “everyday” coffee recipe but it sure was special and fun to drink! Especially on a hot day!
