|It doesn't get better than fresh herbs right from the garden!|
The magic of this recipe are the delicious fresh strawberries and mint
Take a handful of your berries, cut off the stems, and toss into your pitcher with the juice of a lime or two, and a couple sprigs of mint
I don't like mine overly minty, but feel free to add more based on your preference. Most mojito recipes call for adding sugar in, but I thought the strawberries were plenty sweet on their own, so I skipped that all together.
Next, muddle up fruit and mint until it becomes nice and pureed. And no need to use any sort of fancy tools - I found that my old wooden spoon worked perfectly!
Next, add about a cup of rum - to make these extra fruity, I used Strawberry rum, though regular works great as well.
Lastly, fill about 3/4 of the way with ice and top with some club soda.
Give it one more whirl with your spoon and you're ready to serve!
Ingredients (makes 1 pitcher, which serves approx. 4 drinks):
- 1 cup of rum
- 4-5 springs of fresh mint
- 1 cup of washed and cut strawberries (I used about 8 whole strawberries)
- 2-3 limes
- Club soda
Muddle your strawberries, mint and juiced limes in your pitcher with a big wooden spoon until pureed. Add your vodka, then fill 3/4 of the way with ice and top with club soda.
