Strawberry Mojitos

The classic mojito gets a fruity spin with the addition of fresh strawberry juice, creating a cocktail with a vibrant flavor and color. It's the perfect drink for barbecues and lazy summer evenings.

  • Yield: 1 mojito 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • approx. 12 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • dash of coarse or raw sugar
  • 4 strawberries, rinsed and hulled
  • 1/2 ounce agave nectar
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • ice
  • club soda

Instructions

  1. Combine mint and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Sprinkle coarse/raw sugar on top and muddle briefly to release mint oils.
  2. In a separate glass, muddle the strawberries well. Strain juices through a fine mesh sieve into the cocktail shaker, pressing as much of the juice through the sieve as possible.
  3. Add agave and rum to shaker and shake well.
  4. Fill a highball glass with ice and pour cocktail over ice. Top off with club soda (to taste). Stir lightly if needed and enjoy!
