Coco Mint Lemon Gimlet

One of our favorite cocktails, straight from our Vita Coco employees. We hope you love it as much as we do!

You already know that lemon and mint go hand in hand in a gimlet—but did you know that coconut makes the perfect base for this classic cocktail? Adding coconut water is a great way to lighten things up and give you a taste of summer, no matter what time of year it is.

Our favorite thing about this recipe is that it’s easy to make. Whether you’re having an impromptu get-together with friends or a weekend brunch or lunch, this Coco Mint Gimlet is sure to become a new favorite.
