I mentioned the strawberry mojito on my entry about Strawberry Bruschetta I recieved many respones wanting to hear more about the Strawberry Mojito. Mojito’s are one of my favorite drinks and at one of my favorite little restaurants in New York, Barbossa they serve all different kinds of fun mojitos. This is where I was introduced to the Strawberry Mojito.
1/2 of a lime
10-12 mint leaves torn
3/4 oz simple syrup or 2 teaspoons of sugar
2 oz white rum
In a 10 or 12 ounce glass add juice of lime, mint, 2 strawberries and simple syrup. Muddle ingredients with a twisting motion. (This will releases the essential oils in the mint and lime.) Fill the glass with ice, rum, and last strawberry cut into smaller pieces and shake well. Top off with club soda. And now you can enjoy one of my favorite summertime drinks!
