Strawberry Mint Mojitos

It’s Wednesday and 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. And the latest drink I’ve made are these strawberry mint mojitos.

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. Serve in cute mason jars for a rustic presentation.
