Strawberry Spring Mojito

Sip this zippy take on a classic while you watch the snow melt. I love the gorgeous pink hue the strawberries impart. And the mint pairs perfectly with the berries as well.


2 large strawberries, hulled and sliced

1/2 lime juiced

8 large mint leaves

2 teaspoons granulated or super fine sugar

2 shots ounces of white rum

1 cup ice

Club soda as needed


Add strawberries, fresh lime juice, mint and sugar to a cocktail shaker and muddle until strawberries are broken down and mint leaves are torn apart.

Add rum and ice and shake vigorously. Pour cocktail with ice into a glass and top off a splash of club soda. Garnish strawberry slices, lime slices and/or mint leaves and enjoy!
