Ingredients for the Strawberry Mojito

The Strawberry Mojito highlights fresh and flavorful ingredients like berries muddled and mixed with the classic Mojito ingredients of white rum, sugar, lime juice, mint leaves, and club soda. With the addition of strawberries, this cocktail is elevated once again giving you a spectrum of flavors from sweet to tart. 

  • Strawberries: sliced strawberries are perfect when muddled with with the fresh mint and sugar, I opt to use fresh berries over frozen because they’re easier to break down when muddling. 
  • Sugar: this is the base for your sweetness. I recommend using white granulated sugar or cane sugar. You can sub this for a honey syrup or agave, but I enjoy using the granulated sugar to really embody the classic Mojito taste. 
  • Mint leaves: the herbaceous mint leaves give this cocktail a whole new depth of earthiness and freshness. 
  • Lime juice: a squeeze of fresh lime juice gives you the acidic notes you need for a delicious Mojito. Adjust this ingredient depending on how tart you prefer in your cocktail. 
  • White rum: a light, white rum is the preferred liquor for a Mojito. White rum is ideal for mixing and blending especially with fruity and tropical ingredients. 
  • Club soda: top this tipple with some carbonated club soda to balance and fuse all the flavors together.

How to Make the Strawberry Mojito

My favorite part about mojitos is the ease to make them. A few important notes to remember:

  • The classic Mojito is stirred not shaken. So, grab your bar spoon and forget about your cocktail shaker for this recipe. 
  • I reccomend using real sugar over simple syrup, this mixed drink is all about the muddling and shaking which is what makes it such a labor of love. Muddling the real sugar is the best way to craft this classic cocktail 
  • Opt to use white rum over dark rum. Although, there are many Caribbean cocktails that use dark rum as a base, the Mojito is not one of them. Enjoy the lightness of white rum in the delicious recipe. 

Time to grab your muddler and your preferred cocktail glass (I like to use a collins glass because it’s tall and slender which makes it easy to muddle all the ingredients and stir it up with a bar spoon. 

Once you have your materials, you’re ready to create your cocktail! You’ll start by adding the sliced strawberries, white sugar, mint leaves, and lime juice to a glass and gently muddle these ingredients together. I like to give these ingredients a few minutes after I’ve finished muddling to really infuse together. 

Nest, add white rum to the glass and stir with a straw or bar spoon. Fill the glass with ice and top with some carbonated club soda. To finish this signature cocktail, garnish with a lime wheel and mint sprig if desired!
