The muddled mint and sugar in this drink is reminiscent of a mojito cocktail – except the rum is subbed with coffee for an energizing beverage to start the morning or as an afternoon pick me up. For this recipe I like to use a French press to brew the coffee as it is a low-tech, easy method, but the coffee can be made using any desired brewing process. If I don’t want to wait for the coffee to cool then I just substitute store bought cold brew coffee.
I had my first mint mojito iced coffee at Philz Coffee in Santa Monica, a coffee shop chain mainly located in California (mostly up in the Bay Area). They don’t brew any cappuccinos, espresso or lattes (all my top choices) so at first I was confused.
What do you mean a coffee shop in LA doesn’t include espresso? Then a friend had me try the mint mojito iced coffee, and I loved that it was extremely smooth but not too sweet or creamy. Mint mojito iced coffee is a light, minty, refreshing drink perfect for a hot summer day.
