Strawberry Mojito Cocktail Recipe

Description

The Strawberry Mojito is the perfect spin on a classic. This fruity & minty perfection is the ideal summertime cocktail.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 510 Mint Leaves: They should be fresh and springy. Avoid using limp or wilted mint. Reserve a sprig of mint for garnish.
  • 2 oz Rum: Light rum is standard. Bacardi is our brand of choice.
  • 2 whole strawberries, add more if you like.
  • ¾ oz Lime juice: Make sure to use fresh-squeezed juice. Before you ask, Rose’s Lime Juice is not an acceptable substitute.
  • 1 oz Simple syrup: This is simply equal parts sugar and water mixed until forming a sweet syrup. Get it? Simple syrup?
  • Soda water
  • Lime wheel: As garnish

Instructions

  • Put 5 – 10 mint leaves into a mixing glass
  • Gently muddle the mint, bruising the leaves enough to release its flavors and aroma (if you end up with green paste you muddled too hard)
  • Place 2 cut up strawberries in the mixing glass and muddle these until the juices are released
  • Fill the shaker or mixing glass with ice
  • Pour 2oz rum
  • Pour ¾ oz of lime juice, or squeeze directly into the glass, as shown in the video.
  • Pour 1 oz simple syrup
  • Shake for 10-15 seconds
  • Transfer the cocktail (ice and all) into a highball glass
  • Top with soda water
  • Garnish with a mint sprig and lime wheel.
  • Cook Time: 5 min
