Strawberry Mint Mojito

Serves 1

Enjoy the strawberry season with this simple cocktail.

10 fresh mint leaves, plus 1 sprig for garnish
4 juicy strawberries, tops removed
1 1/2 ounces simple syrup
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice (about 1/2 lime)
2 ounces of your favorite rum, such as Bully Boy
Splash of soda water
Splash of St. Germain (optional)

  1. In a tall highball glass, add the mint leaves and strawberries and gently mash with a muddler so strawberries are pulpy and juicy. (It’s best to add mint leaves first under the strawberries so they stay intact while releasing fragrance.)
  2. Add the simple syrup, lime juice, and rum. Add ice to fill three quarters of the way, and top with club soda and a splash of St. Germain, if using.
  3. Use a long bar spoon and mix very well to disperse all the flavors. Garnish with the sprig of mint.
Simple Syrup


1 cup sugar
1 cup water

Add 1 cup of sugar to 1 cup of boiling water. Stir to dissolve. Store in a mason jar in the fridge. (Simply double this for a crowd).
