When I polled my Instagram audience if they wanted this recipe after previewing it, the answer was 100% YES. I completely understand why because and it is indeed 100% REFRESHING! Bubbly Strawberry Mint Mojito is the summer drink you’ve been craving. You just didn’t know it!
Like a lot of gardeners, my mint plant is growing faster than I can use it up. A mojito recipe is a perfect way to make use of the summer herb, and its herbaceous flavor adds a cooling effect to this cocktail. Not a gardener? The mint sold in your local grocery store’s produce department will suffice — just remember to keep it refrigerated until use.
This recipe is for one cocktail but you could easily maximize it to make a pitcher to serve to guests at your brunch or outdoor summer party. It’s so good thanks to its fresh ingredients and the bubble’s effervescence.
Have you ever heard of “muddling” herbs? You may have seen a bartender do it when crafting a cocktail. By using a cocktail muddler, or in my case the end of a wooden spoon, you simply press and twist the mint in the bottom of a sturdy wine glass. Just in case you would like a visual for how to do it, here’s a helpful instructional link.
I used strawberry-flavored Waterloo Sparkling Water for extra fruit flavor in combination with sliced fresh strawberries. You will also need sugar, lime wedges, and aged silver rum over ice.
