3. Strain into your prepared glass. Slowly top with ginger beer, then gently stir to combine. Enjoy immediately.

RECIPE NOTES

Foam on Top: the mojito will have foam on top once you add the ginger beer. Just gently stir to combine and the foam will subside.

Coconut Milk Separation: as the mojito sits in the ice, the coconut milk may slowly separate from the rum. I don't normally notice it much, but coconut milk brands vary and can cause different outcomes. Just gently stir to mix everything, then continue drinking!

Sugar: I don't personally add the sugar to the drink, as I find the drink to be sweet enough with the sugared rim and the ginger beer, but if you like a sweeter drink, use the sugar.
