Strawberry Mint Mojitos

It’s Wednesday! Time for another cocktail recipe! I usually stay in the kitchen and pass the bartending duties off to someone else, but recently I have traded in my wooden spoon for a cocktail stirrer!

We have been having some amazing and warm weather here on the West Coast. To celebrate the summer-like temperatures, I made fresh strawberry and mint mojitos! They are so refreshing and cool, perfect for a hot summer evening outside!

Mojitos remind me of summer. I think they are the unofficial drink of summer! Plus, this time of year, the mint plants in my garden are overgrowing! I added some strawberries for bright color and a bit of fruity flavor. Delish! Serve in cute jelly jars for a rustic presentation!

Strawberry Mojitos


  • 10 mint leaves
  • 2 large strawberries
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) light rum, such as Barcardi
  • 1/2 cup club soda
  • juice of half a lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon agave syrup
  • Extra mint leaves and strawberries for garnish (optional)


  1. In a tall glass, muddle the mint leaves and strawberries until the mint is fragrant and the strawberries are broken into pieces. Stir in the light rum, club soda, juice of half a lime, and agave syrup. Add a few ice cubes to the glass. Garnish with extra mint leaves and a strawberry.

    Mojito is my favourite drink. Now, as the strawberry season has just started, I’ll do your version.

    Mmmm, mojitos! I just posted a recipe on my blog for cucumber gin mojitos which I’ve been loving lately. A strawberry version sounds really good as well, I’ll have to give it a try. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. Yum! So far this summer, I’ve been sticking to sangria, but I think I need to give this a try!
