Strawberry season is upon us. What a better way to celebrate than with a refreshing cocktail on a Sunday Afternoon?

 

Mojitos are known for their classic mint and lime flavor, but we are mixing it up with a spring blush. That’s right, strawberries!

  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar.
  • 2 shots of Rum.
  • A splash or two of soda water.

 

Steps:

  1. Crush some ice in your blender.
  2. Place the strawberries in the bottom of a cocktail shaker.
  3. Next layer the lime and mint leaves on top of the berries.
  4. Add the sugar and fill the shaker with ice.
  5. Add the rum and shake well
  6. Pour into a tall glass and top off with soda water.

A delicious non-alcoholic version can be made by omitting the rum and adding lemonade.
