Strawberry Mojito

These strawberry mojitos are equal parts sweet and boozy thanks to the combination of simple strawberry syrup and rum. 


  1. 1 cup fresh strawberries

  2. ¾ cup sugar (for simple syrup)

  3. ¾ cup water (for simple syrup)

  4. 4 mint leaves

  5. 9 oz rum

  6. ¼ cup lemon juice

  7. 12 oz lemon sparkling water

  8. 2 cups crushed ice


  1. First, make the strawberry simple syrup (minimum of one hour before making the cocktails). 

  2. Chop up strawberries and add them to a saucepan with the sugar and water. Mix together and bring everything to a simmer, stirring frequently.

  3. Cook at a simmer for about five minutes, until the water turns pink.

  4. Remove the simple syrup from the stove, let cool, and add to a closed container. 

  5. Place the container in the fridge for at least one hour to chill.

  6. Once the syrup has finished chilling, make the cocktails.

  7. To make one cocktail, add three tbsp of the strawberry simple syrup and four chopped mint leaves to a glass. Muddle, then, fill the glass with ½ cup crushed ice, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 3 oz sparkling water, and 1.5 oz rum.

  8. Garnish each cocktail with an additional sliced strawberry or mint.
