Strawberry Mojitos

Strawberry Mojitos are a delicious, refreshing drink made from a few simple ingredients. The strawberries set it apart from a regular mojito.

A few months ago Justin wanted to make some mojitos with the mint leaves we are growing in the herb garden. I don’t care for regular mojitos, so we started looking up variants and found something about strawberry mojitos.

Now, anyone who knows me can tell you that strawberries are one of my favorite fruits and favorite flavor. We tried to grow strawberries in the garden, but the birds kept eating them. We have to rely on getting them from our farmer’s market or grocery store.

Mojitos sound fancy, and look pretty, but are so easy to make! For my 30th birthday, I had a fondue party (see my cheese fondue recipe here). I made a double batch of strawberry mojitos to put in the drink dispenser I have. I think these went faster than the fondue! Everyone was asking how I made it so they could make their own.

Mint is one of the few plants that we have had no problem growing in our garden at all. If we didn’t keep it in check, it would overrun the entire garden beds out there! We harvest it as it grows, and use it to make Homemade Creme de Menthe, mojitos, or give it away to neighbors and friends.

I actually prefer to make these the day before I want to drink it and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. That way the flavor of the fruit and mint have a chance to infuse with the liquid. I also don’t like to use ice since it waters down my drinks. And by doing this the drink is already cold and doesn’t need ice. You can also do this to make it ahead of time for a party so it’s one less thing to take care of on that day.

Step by Step

To make the strawberry mojitos, make sure you have a sturdy pitcher since you will be muddling and mixing in it. I have a glass one that we were given as a wedding gift that’s a perfect size. Cut the limes into quarters and squeeze to release some of the juice. Then toss the entire lime chunks in the pitcher.

Add the mint leaves and muddle those. If you don’t have a muddler, use the back of a spoon to press the mint leaves to release some of their oil. Make sure you don’t crush them so much that they look like wilted spinach, but enough so that you can smell the mint.

Add the sliced strawberries to the pitcher and crush those with the muddler as well. You want them to release some of their juices into the pitcher.

Pour in the sugar and rum. Stir in the soda until the sugar has dissolved. This can take quite a bit of stirring, but you don’t want all of the sugar to sit at the bottom of the pitcher.

Add some ice to your serving cups and serve the mojito cold. As you pour the mojito, make sure some of the lime, mint, and strawberries go into the serving glasses.
