Mint Mojito Coffee

A homemade version of the popular Philz’ Coffee drink Mint Mojito Coffee!

Mint Mojito Iced Coffee

I remember the first time I had a mint mojito coffee from Philz Coffee while visiting San Jose a few years ago. When you place your order they’ll ask you if you want it “sweet and creamy.”

The only answer is YES. I was hooked from the first sip.

Philz Coffee started in the Bay Area and they now have a growing number of locations throughout LA, OC, and SD.

I have two locations within 15 minutes of my house. It’s a blessing and a curse. I could get my sweet caffeine fix anytime I want, but it also wrecks havoc on my wallet.

Purchasing coffees three times a week or so adds up. A LOT. A few weeks ago, I shared my solution to my coffee dilemma: homemade cold brew coffee concentrate.  

Today I’m using that concentrate to make my version of mint mojito iced coffee!

This is a very simple recipe that will save you a trip to the coffee shop. A word of warning: you may not want to drink this everyday because it does contain a fair amount of sugar and heavy cream.

Hence, the reason why this drink is known for being “sweet and creamy.”

However, don’t let the name fool you. This is a non-alcoholic drink.

It’s a non-alcoholic mojito! 

The “mojito” in the title refers to how the mint is muddled with the cold brew coffee similar to how fresh herb is used in a classic rum mojito cocktail.

It is then sweetened with turbinado simple syrup and made rich and creamy with a shot of heavy cream. Everything gets shaken together and then strained into an iced filled serving glass.

The finishing touch is a handful of fresh mint. With each sip, you’ll get the added minty aroma to intensify your minty beverage.

It’s a delicious iced summer drink that, in my opinion, should be enjoyed all year long!

P.S. I love this flavor combo so much that I made a mint mojito coffee ice cream version last year.
