Instructions

  1. In a chill glass muddle the strawberries, mint, and simple syrup. 

  2. Squeeze in the lime (feel free to drop in some lime wedges). Add the rum.

  3. Fill the glass with crushed ice (you can use cubed if you prefere), top with soda water and give it a gentle stir.

  4. Garnish with strawberry slices and mint leaves. 

Tips

  • Use fresh, ripe strawberries. Frozen strawberries can be used, but they will not be as flavorful.
  • Muddle the strawberries and mint leaves well to release their juices and oils. This is essential for the flavor of the mojito.
  • Don't over-muddle the strawberries, or they will become mushy.
  • Use a good quality rum. 
  • Use club soda to top off the mojito. This will help to keep it light and refreshing.
  • Garnish with fresh strawberries and mint leaves. This will make your mojito look and taste even better.
  • You can make a simple syrup by boiling equal parts sugar and water. Let the syrup cool completely before using it in your mojito.
  • If you don't have a muddler, you can use a wooden spoon or the back of a fork to crush the strawberries and mint leaves.
  • If you want to make a non-alcoholic mojito, simply omit the rum and add more club soda.

Frequently Asked Questions

Expand All:
Why don't you shake a mojito?

Shaking a mojito can bruise the mint leaves and release bitterness. It can also dilute the flavor of the drink. It is best to stir a mojito gently to combine the ingredients.

Can I make a strawberry mojito without alcohol?

Yes, you can make a strawberry mojito without alcohol by omitting the rum and adding more club soda. You can also add a splash of strawberry puree or syrup to give the drink a more fruity flavor.

How long does a strawberry mojito last?

A strawberry mojito will last for about 2 hours in the refrigerator. After that, the strawberries will start to lose their flavor and the mint leaves will start to wilt.
