Love this summer cocktail! Ever since we have been home from the beach, I get it out almost every time we go to dinner. It is my new favorite! So I have made it my mission to perfect the Mojito at home. I may or may not have gone through an entire bottle of rum. Just the sacrifice I am willing to make for you guys!
Ingredients- serves 2- but I drink both because the hubby doesn’t do rum 😉
6 large strawberries, sliced
10 fresh mint leaves
2 shots of your favorite white rum
2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons simple syrup – equal parts water and sugar, boiled until combined, then cooled…I make a batch and keep it in the fridge.
1/4 cup club soda (or sprite/7up tastes awesome in there as well)
***For a non-alcoholic version, you can simply omit the rum and add a bit more soda
In a glass, muddle the simple syrup, strawberries, and fresh mint leaves. That smell is glorious! Add a handful of ice to your glass and pour in the white rum, lime juice, and club soda. Carefully combine together, garnish with a sprig of mint, and enjoy!
