STRAWBERRY MINT MOJITO
Traditional mojitos get a fruity twist in these refreshing Strawberry Mojitos prepared with muddled fresh strawberries, mint, lime juice, white rum, simple syrup and club soda. They’re incredibly easy to prepare and dangerously delicious!
- Strawberries (Frozen are fine too but thaw them to muddle)
- Simple Syrup ( Just good ol’ water and sugar dissolved in a pot on the stove is just fine)
- Lime juice (Fresh is best)
- Club Soda
- White Rum
Step 1: Muddle the strawberries and mint leaves in simple syrup and lime juice using a muddler in a cocktail shaker. This releases the juices from the strawberries and oils from the mint leaves.
Step 2: Pour equal amounts of the strawberry mixture in 2 glasses over ice. Add 1/4 cup of rum to each glass and top each glass with club soda.
Step 3: Garnish glasses with a fresh strawberry, lime wheel and/or mint sprig, if desired. While garnishing isn’t technically necessary, it makes for a beautiful presentation!
- If you don’t have a muddler, use the back of a wooden spoon.
- No cocktail shaker? No problem! Get you a wide mouth mason jar with lid so you can muddle those strawberries!
- Enjoy y’all!
