How to Make a Strawberry Mojito
- 3 to 4 fresh strawberries, de-stemmed (hulled) and cut into small pieces
- 1 lime, cut into quarters
- 3 sprigs of mint
- 1 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 oz. (60 ml) rum
- Splash of club soda
== Steps ==
# Fill the cocktail shaker with the strawberries.
# Add the lime.
# Add the mint sprigs. Only use the mint leaves and discard the stems.
# Add the sugar.
# Use a muddler or a blunt kitchen utensil (like the handle-end of a spoon) to mash the ingredients together until they mix into a mash.
# Fill the shaker with crushed ice, directly on top of the fruit and mint pieces.
# Add the rum. You should see the liquid rise almost to the surface of the ice.
# Cover and shake well.
# Pour into a tall glass.
# Top off with a splash of club soda.
# Garnish with a fresh strawberry, stem still intact. It's now ready for serving.
