Strawberry Mojito

My Cuban-themed week is at an end, and I’m a little sad. I’m going to miss the mojo pork and Cuban rice I feasted on this week. But I do have one more delicious recipe to try, the classic mojito cocktail with a fruity twist. I’m not a regular rum drinker, but I seriously love mojitos. The classic version is my go-to, but I do love trying different versions, even when they’re made with vodka ?.  I’m very excited to try this strawberry mojito recipe!

The Ingredients

The list of course ingredients for this recipe was filled with easy-to-find ingredients that were reasonably priced. I always keep a bottle of homemade simple syrup (recipe below) around, so I didn’t have to buy that particular ingredient. It’s equal parts hot water and sugar, stir until the sugar is dissolved, then chill. It takes less than 5 minutes to make, and it’s far cheaper than purchasing it ready-made.

My only issue with the list of ingredients was it omitted the club soda. That ingredient isn’t mentioned until the end of the instructions. Fortunately, club soda is a staple for me, and I always have some around.

Strawberry Mojito Ingredients
Bacardi Superior Rum, mint leaves, lime, strawberries, and simple syrup (club soda not shown)

The Process

This strawberry mojito recipe was very easy to make, and I had a garnished cocktail in 4 minutes. Muddling the limes was the toughest part. Squeezing them a bit first helps soften them up. Of course the strawberries and mint muddled very easily. The rest is just a matter of adding rum, crushed ice, and club soda. And crushed ice is important—it keeps the muddled fruit from floating to the top of your drink.

Clear & Accurate Directions
Appearance
Taste
Yes, adding strawberries to a mojito is brilliant! The sweet and tangy fruit pairs really well with the mint and lime. I also liked the fact that I could still taste the rum, though it didn’t overpower the rest of the flavors. The list of ingredients omits the club soda (it’s only listed at the end of the directions). Otherwise, the directions for this cocktail were clear and easy to follow.
