Strawberry Mint Mojito Recipe

Strawberry Mint Mojito Recipe

After posting pictures of these mojitos on my Instagram stories, I got so many messages asking for the recipe. And to be honest, I can't blame those people, as these are delicious!

Fresh, minty and sweet, they make the perfect summer cocktail, especially if you're still a bit nervous about going out to a pub or bar just yet. 

The best part about this recipe is that it takes no time at all to make up, and you don't need a load of complicated, expensive ingredients to make it either. Plus the strawberries give the classic mojito a fruity update that will keep you coming back to this recipe time and time again (as spoken from someone who has done this herself).

METHOD


1. Rub the rims of the glasses with one of the lime halves (don't get rid of the lime as you'll need that for later). Place 1tsp of sugar in a small dish, and dip the rims of the glasses in the sugar. I find that this cocktail works just as well without this, so feel free to skip this step if you don't want the faff of putting the sugar on the glasses. Put glasses in the fridge as an option too to keep the glasses chilled. 

2. Add strawberries and mint to a bowl and sprinkle the remaining sugar over them. Lightly crush these with a wooden spoon to release the strawberry juice. Leave to stand for 5 minutes. 

3. Add the juice from the lime halves and then whizz the ingredients in a blender. If you want more of a smooth drink, then strain the mix. 

4. Add ice to the glasses, pour out the rum, and then add the strawberry mix. Top up with sparkling water, and decorate with the extra mint and strawberries.
