Classic New Orleans Strawberry Mojito


This light and tasty cocktail is sure to please and a great conversation piece too if you can make them last! The sweet juicy fresh strawberries and fresh mint are just the right compliment to this classic drink! 


INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 large strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 6-8 large mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoons granulated or super fine sugar
  • 2 fluid ounces white rum (2 shots)
  • Club soda or seltzer water, as needed (about 1/4 cup)
  • Garnish: mint leaf, half a strawberry

METHOD:

  1. Add the strawberries, mint and sugar to a cocktail shaker or large drinking glass. Muddle until strawberries are broken down and mint leaves are torn apart.
  2. Add the rum and shake well if using a cocktail shaker. Stir well if using a glass.
  3. Pour rum/strawberry mixture into a tall glass. Finish filling the glass with ice and top off with club soda. Mix gently with a straw.
  4. Garnish with a mint leaf and half a strawberry.
