Description

This strawberry mojito cocktail recipe is perfect for when sweet strawberries are in season. Make a single cocktail or serve up a whole pitcher with this easy method of making the mojito mixer in a blender beforehand.


Ingredients

Units Scale

For the strawberry mojito mixer

  • 16 ounces ripe strawberries, washed and green tops removed
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups fresh lime juice (see Note 1)
  • 4 cups fresh mint leaves and tender stems, loosely packed

For a pitcher

  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups white or light rum
  • 3 cups sparkling water, chilled
  • Mint sprigs and halved strawberries for garnish, optional

Instructions

For the strawberry mojito mixer

  1. Blend. Add strawberries, sugar, lime juice, and mint leaves to a blender and blend together for about 30-60 seconds until the sugar is dissolved and the mint leaves are finely chopped.
  2. Strain. Strain the strawberry mixture through a fine-mesh strainer. Discard solids. You should have about 4 cups of strawberry mojito mixer. If not using the mixture right away, store it in the refrigerator until ready.

For a pitcher

  1. Mix. In a pitcher, stir the mixer and rum together until combined. Gently stir in the sparkling water just before serving.
  2. Serve. Pour the mojito into glasses filled with ice. Garnish with mint sprigs and strawberries and serve immediately.

Notes

  1. For easier prep, check out the produce section of your grocery store for fresh squeezed juice. 
  2. The strawberry mojito mixer can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. The mixture will separate so stir it before using if you won’t be using it all at once.
  3. For a single cocktail, mix 1/2 cup mixer with 3-4 tablespoons rum and 6 tablespoons sparkling water.
  4. To make a non-alcoholic mojito, omit the rum and replace with extra sparkling water.
