Why This recipe Works

There’s no simple syrup, and it’s delicious. You won’t miss the annoying step of making one. Promise. (And be sure to check out the strawberry old fashioned recipe for another no-fuss fruit cocktail.)

Let’s not overcomplicate things here. It’s time to mix.

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup club soda
  • 1/4 cup white rum
  • 1/4 cup strawberries halved (about 4 big berries)
  • 12 large mint leaves

You’ll also want a glass (obviously) and something to muddle with. I used this wooden muddler but I’ve used the skinny end of a wooden spoon or the rounded end of a butter knife in a pinch.

let’s make some mojitos

a dedicated muddler is cheap and convenient. You can get one here.

First, we want to get all the mint flavor out of those leaves. You can just drop them in there and expect them to do anything. And to get a minty drink, we must muddle.

Drop your strawberries in the glass, along with the sugar, lime juice, and mint, and smash them up for a few minutes. Take your time with this step. The berries should totally pulverized when you’re done.

Then, pour in the rum and club soda, add some ice, and garnish.

That’s was easy, right?

Mojitos are best when made one by one and made fresh.  Annoying, but worth it
For an extra-pretty drink, slide a lime slice inside the glass after mixing and put a fresh strawberry on top.
