If you reside in a similar corner of the internet as I do, chances are you’ve heard of the viral Philz Coffee Mint Mojito. It’s an incredible iced coffee drink made with muddled fresh mint and brown sugar, perfect for the upcoming summer months. To make your own at home, you’ll need only five simple ingredients: coffee, fresh mint, milk, brown sugar, and ice!


Units Scale
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves + more for garnish
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 shots espresso or 1/2 cup drip coffee, cooled to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup milk or cream of choice (I used oat milk)
  • handful of ice


  1. Muddle the mint & sugar. In a glass or cocktail shaker, muddle the mint leaves with the brown sugar until fragrant.
  2. Mix with coffee & milk. Add the espresso or coffee and a small handful of ice to the shaker. Shake or mix well, pour into a glass over ice, and top with milk or cream. Garnish with additional fresh mint and enjoy!


Don’t skip the ice: I highly encourage adding some ice to the cocktail shaker and to the glass you’re serving this in. The ice in the shake helps to break up the sugar.

Make it a cocktail: If you’re looking to lean into the mojito element of this drink even more, add an ounce or two of rum to the mix before shaking and make it a cocktail!
