The Chi-jito

The Chi-jito - refreshing, healthy, non alcoholic cocktail

Some of you may know I basically don’t drink these days, body a temple and all that 🙂 but my absolute favourite drink has to be the classic Mojito.  The problem is just one good one these days & I’m wrecked!

So I thought I’d make use of my last carton of Chi coconut water to make a special cocktail especially  as tonight was ‘date night’!

The Chi-jito – ingredients

How to assemble the Chi-jito

  1. Add a touch of honey round the rim of the glasses & dip them into the dessicated cocnut
  2. Fill a blender with a few handfuls of ice & blend until small chunks
  3. Fill cocktail shaker glass with the crushed ice & top up with Chi Coconut water
  4. Smash a few fresh tender mint leaves in your hands (clap them together & twist) & throw into cocktail shaker glass
  5. Shake baby shake!
  6. Put a few most smashed sprigs of mint in the bottom of the cocktail glasses
  7. Fill cocktail glasses with more crushed ice & pour over the now chilled Chi/Ice mix from the shaker.
  8. Load it right up with a small mountain of ice to allow for a bit of meltage
  9. Dress the glass with a sprig of mint, a slice of lime & squeeze a chunk of lime over the top of the drink

DONE!
