Muddle the rum with the strawberries and mint until the strawberries and mint have broken down and flavored the rum.
Add the lime juice and simple syrup.
Add ice to the cocktail shaker or the glass. if using a cocktail shaker, add the lid and shake for about 15 seconds and then strain into a cocktail glass filled with ice.
Top with the sparkling water and stir.

Always use fresh squeezed lime juice, not bottled. We squeeze a few limes at the beginning of the week to use for cocktails (and cooking) through the week.
Instructions are given for either using a cocktail shaker or preparing the mojito right in the cocktail glass. Try both and see what your preference is.
