Strawberry Mint Mojito Ingredients
A strawberry mojito is a refreshing twist on the classic mojito cocktail. It features all of the traditional mojito ingredients plus some. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Mint Leaves– Fresh mint leaves really bring out the minty flavor. If you prefer, you could use a mint extract instead.
- Strawberries– Fresh strawberries have a sweeter, juicier flavor, but you could use a couple frozen strawberries instead.
- Lime Juice– Lime juice adds a tart and refreshing flavor and helps to release the flavors of the mint leaves.
- Simple Syrup– Simple syrup is merely just sugar and water boiled together. You can find it at any grocery store, usually in the baking aisle with the sweeteners.
- Light Rum– The best light rum for this recipe is Bacardi. It’s smooth and affordable, but you can use any light rum that you prefer.
- Strawberry Flavored Sparkling Water– You can find flavored sparkling water at any grocery store next to the regular waters and gatorade.
- Ice Cubes– For a cool, refreshing drink, you’ll want to add a few ice cubes.
- Garnishments– Garnishments are totally optional, but I like to garnish my drink with fresh strawberry and lime slices.
