Strawberry Mojitos


We’re getting ready for the summer with more poolside drinks! 

Sometimes we both want different things so this time we made a strawberry mojito and a pina colada. Since strawberries are coming into season, we thought we’d share our strawberry mojito recipe to get you in the mood for pool weather! 

Also be sure to check out our poolside Negronis here.

Note: depending on the sweetness of your strawberries, you may want to adjust the simple syrup amount up or down slightly.

We found these glasses from Kate Spade and thought they would be perfect for poolside drinks. Not only are they functional since they aren’t glass (remember the “no glass by the pool” rule?) but they’re super cute. 

Check them out!



Ingredients

2 ounces rum
1 ounce lime juice
½ ounce simple syrup (see recipe below)
3-4 mint sprigs
2-3 very ripe strawberries, sliced


Simple Syrup Ingredients

1 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar

Instructions
Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until the sugar is fully dissolved in the water, then remove from heat and let cool. Store in the refrigerator for up to a month.


Instructions for the Cocktail

Put the mint sprigs and strawberries, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Muddle well.
Add the rum and lime juice to the shaker and fill with ice. Shake briefly, just to combine, and pour the shaker, including the ice, into a tall cocktail glass.
Top with club soda and garnish with fresh mint to serve.
