Strawberry mojito

strawberry mojito

I decided to try this drink after a lady on facebook posted details of all the amazing things she had made with her homegrown strawberries, including strawberry mojito.  So I invested in some Bacardi, mint, lime, soda and strawberries and here it is.  The strawberry gives the drink an interesting consistency and adds a British twist to this tasty Caribbean classic!  Plus drinking it will make you feel all sophisticated…

Feel free to omit the rum if you want an alcohol-free version.

Ingredients (serves 1)

Juice of 1½ limes

Bunch fresh mint leaves

2 tsp granulated sugar

Handful ice

Big splash white rum (e.g. Bacardi)

Splash soda water, to taste

Approx 6 strawberries, pureed

Place the mint and sugar into a sturdy glass and mash with the end of a rolling pin, to bruise the mint.  Add the lime juice.  Add the ice and pour over the rum.  Add soda water, the pureed strawberries, and stir well.  Decorate with lime wedges/umbrellas and serve.
