Super easy summertime strawberry mojito, made with fresh mint and juicy, ripe strawberries.
Summertime just calls for these types of cocktails. Long hot days, abundance of fresh fruit and herbs just beg to be mixed in a summery “I want to getaway to a tropical place” type of a drink. This drink evokes that feeling for me. It is not too sweet, the mint makes it refreshing and the rum gives it just enough of a tropical feel that is reminiscent of a perfect getaway.
In addition to eating fresh strawberries, mixing them in smoothies, plain yogurt this cocktail is a great way to use up extra berries from the Farmer’s Market
