Strawberry season is here! It is the perfect time to harness the sweet and deliciously tangy flavours of this fruit to make refreshing cocktails. The slightly creamy texture provided by the fruit, and its fragrant flavours, imbue a unique personality to any cocktail it is added to. Combine it with rum and other fresh ingredients such as mint and lime juice, you get a yummy drink perfect for any weather: the Strawberry Mojito!

Key Ingredients To Make Strawberry Mojito

Simple Syrup

Simple syrup mixes quicker than sugar, hence it is opted to make the drink. You can make the syrup easily at home (recipe shared below) or also use a store-bought syrup.

Strawberries

Use good quality, freshly bought ripe strawberries to give the drink a good flavour. 

Mint

Fresh mint leaves are an important ingredient to make mojitos. 

Lime Juice

Use freshly squeezed lime juice to ensure you get the best results.

Rum

Good quality rum, such as Captain Morgan works well to make the cocktail.

Club Soda

You can use club soda or any carbonated water such as sparkling water or seltzer.

Strawberry Mojito Recipe

(For one serving)

This amazing Strawberry Mojito recipe is adapted from the book The Berry Bible. 

Ingredients

30 ml Simple syrup (you can also use 1 tablespoon of sugar instead)
3 Fresh Strawberries 
2-3 Fresh spearmint sprigs, chopped (if you prefer smaller mint pieces in your cocktail)
30 ml Lime Juice, freshly squeezed 
60 ml Captain Morgan White Rum
90-120 ml Soda water
Sprig of mint or strawberry slices, for garnish

Method

Take a highball glass and keep it in the fridge for 30 minutes. Remove the chilled glass from the fridge and add simple syrup (or sugar), strawberries and mint leaves. Muddle them using the back of a spoon or a muddler. Crush the berries and mint leaves well. Pour lime juice and rum and stir well to combine. Fill the glass with ice and top off with soda water. Gently stir. Garnish with mint sprigs or strawberry slices.

Note

Basic simple syrup is made using equal parts sugar and water. The water is heated with sugar until the latter dissolves fully. It is best to make larger portions of the syrup, especially for the summer so you can whip out cocktails easily. Keep the batch portion of simple syrup in the fridge, it will stay good for months.
