Strawberry Mint Mojito Recipe:
The mojito is the ultimate summer cocktail: mint, lime juice, rum and a splash of spritzy soda water — it doesn’t get any better than that. Or can it? We think so! We added a twist to this classic cocktail that takes the refreshing flavor of citrus and mint and fuses it with the sweetness of strawberry; delivering this sultry summertime spirit. With a few simple ingredients there’s no reason not to give this refreshment a go!
Ingredients (serves one):
3 large strawberries, hulled and sliced
5 fresh mint leaves, plus more for garnish
1.5 ounces (3 tablespoons) white rum
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon simple syrup
1/4 cup club soda
1. In a glass, muddle the simple syrup, strawberries, and fresh mint leaves until fragrant.
2. Add a handful of ice to your glass and pour in the white rum, lime juice, and club soda.
3. Gently stir, garnish with a sprig of mint, and enjoy immediately!
For a non-alcoholic version, you can simply omit the rum and add a bit more club soda.
