Fresh Strawberry Mojito


Fresh Strawberry Mojito

 

The beautiful warm weather always makes me want to be outdoors basking in the sun. I’m a sun driven gal—through and through.

And how better to enjoy the sunny warmth than with a delicious and pretty cocktail?

Mojitos are one of my favorite adult beverages but I rarely order them when I’m out because I’m rather particular on how they’re prepared. Most places skimp on the mint and limes——–and without enough, you’re pretty much drinking spiked-flavored-water. Bleh!

But when done correctly, Mojitos are just divine. Super herbaceous and refreshing.

 

Fresh Strawberry Mojito

I picked up a carton of fresh strawberries while I was at my farmers market and thought they would be a perfect addition to my beloved cocktail. The fruitiness of the berries paired beautifully with the mint and citrus.

The measurements below are my suggested amounts according to how I like my Mojitos. But if you like things sweeter or prefer more strawberries, adjust to your fancy.  :)

Cheers!

  2. Wow. Mojitos are my all time favourite cocktail and strawberries are my all time favourite fruit. You are a genius. Yum. It’s autumn here in New Zealand so sadly I have to wait until next summer to try this cocktail out. I hope you have one for me.

  3. This looks amazing! The weather is finally getting nice in Boston so it might be time to make the first mojito of the season. I’ll start with this one!
