1. For coconut-mint syrup, in a medium saucepan combine sugar, water, coconut, mint and red pepper flakes. Bring to boiling. Continue boiling for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for one hour to allow flavors to develop. Strain mixture through a fine strainer, pressing out as much liquid as possible; discard the solids. Let cool to room temperature.
2. For Mojito, fill a tall glass (10 to 14 ounces) with ice. Add rum, 3 tablespoons coconut-mint syrup, lime juice and blue curacao. Slowly add club soda. Stir before serving. If desired, garnish with mint leaves and lime wedge.
Quick Tip: If not using syrup immediately, cover and refrigerate for up to one month. Stir before using.
