I don’t know about you, but it officially feels like summer when all the strawberries start hitting the farmer’s markets and grocery stores. Is there anything more wonderful than a perfectly ripe strawberry? It’s so sweet, so fresh, so delicious. I eat them in a multitude of ways, usually just rinsed right from the carton. But another favorite way is with strawberry cocktails.
The other thing that signals summer to me is mint! As soon as those little sprigs start popping up out of the ground, visions of mojitos dance around in my head. Mojitos are made for summer sipping. Why not put two of my favorite things about summer – mint and strawberries together and make a Strawberry Mojito!
If you’re wondering How to Make a Mojito – it’s super easy! You basically muddle the mint and strawberries with simple syrup (Stainless Steel Muddler, Gorgeous Wooden Muddler, Extra Long Muddler) in a chilled highball glass (Anchor Hocking Heavy Base Highball Glasses or Home Essentials Bubble Highball Glasses) squeeze in some fresh lime juice, add rum and top with soda water. Garnish with mint and strawberries!
This Strawberry Mojito is amazing and I found this book, 101 Mojitos and Other Muddled Drinks and I can’t wait to work my way through the mojitos!
