Life’s Flavors ~ Strawberry Mojito By Allison Libby-Thesing
  • PublishedApril 4, 2024

As the temperature starts to creep up in Texas, our herb infused cocktail for April is the perfect drink for sipping and enjoying together. This month’s cocktail of the month, from The Oaks Bed and Breakfast is a Strawberry Mojito. Our mint is looking amazing already this Spring and we wanted to take advantage of its bounty early.

Simple in flavor and ingredients, this drink will be a crowd pleaser for sure. Unless you are allergic to strawberries, be sure to put this drink on your must make list. If you are allergic change out with watermelon or blackberries. This strawberry mojito is easy to scale up for larger groups to enjoy together. If you have friends who do not drink alcohol, leave out the rum and finish off with sparkling water.

3 fresh strawberries, diced
10-15 fresh mint leaves
½ medium lime, juiced about 1 tablespoon
1 ounce simple syrup
2 ounces of white Rum
Sparkling Water

Combine strawberries, mint, lime, and simple syrup into a glass and muddle the group together. Stir in Rum. Fill glass with ice, and then top with sparkling water. Garnish with mint leaves, limes, and a fresh strawberry.

While this is just a single serving for this drink, it can easily be made in a pitcher for friends to enjoy. I just love how the mint really comes out in this drink when muddled well with the strawberries. The lime adds just the right amount of tart, to balance out the sweetness of the simple syrup.

Let us know what you think and be sure to share your photos with us when you make one of The Oaks Bed and Breakfast, herb infused cocktails. As always please drink responsibly and have a designated driver. Cheers!
