Before strawberries go out, here’s a drink that takes the famous Mojito to an entirely different level. Is easy to make, a little minty and refreshing, perfect to sip on the soon-to-be cooler evenings. You can frost the rims of the glass by simply dipping the rims in a little additional lime juice just to dampen, then in sugar. Let it dry. Then fill your glass, and sip into your dreams.
- 2 lime wedges
- 6 – 8 mint leaves, plus 1 mint sprig (for garnish, optional)
- 1 strawberry (plus 1/2 more for garnish, optional)
- Ice cubes plus crushed ice
- 2 oz. dark rum
- 3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
- 1/2 oz. sugar cane syrup or blue agave syrup
In cocktail shaker, muddle the lime wedges and mint leaves with 1 strawberry. Add ice cubes, rum, lemon juice, and syrup. Shake well. Strain into crushed iced-filled high ball glass. Garnish with 1/2 strawberry & mint sprig. Serves 1 but can easily be doubled.
