Thirsty Thursday: Strawberry Mojito

3 Mar

I decided to do a strawberry mojito as this week’s signature cocktail to keep the strawberry thing going. This recipe is via Taste of Park City and it sounds so delish!!! The color is vibrant and the strawberry and mint garnish is a perfect touch!

What you’ll need:
■Sugar to rim glass
■2 large limes, quartered
■1/2 bunch mint leaves
■7 strawberries, quartered
■1 cup white sugar
■1 cup white rum
■2 cups club soda
■8 cups ice cubes
Directions:

1.Pour 1/4 to 1/2 inch of sugar onto a small, shallow plate. Run one of the lime quarters around the rim of each cocktail glass, then dip the glasses into the sugar to rim; set aside.
2.Squeeze all of the lime quarters into a sturdy glass pitcher. Toss the juiced limes into the pitcher along with the mint, strawberries, and 1 cup of sugar. Crush the fruits together with a muddler to release the juices from the strawberries and the oil from the mint leaves. Stir in the rum and club soda until the sugar has dissolved. Pour into the sugared glasses over ice cubes to serve.
