Strawberry Mojito

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

A mojito is traditionally made with white rum, muddled mint and lime juice, and seltzer. Strawberries make this cocktail both sweeter and more tart—a nice match for bold amber rum or more subtle white rum.


  • 11 oz. strawberries, hulled (2-3/4 cups)
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 10 large fresh mint leaves
  • 1 cup white or amber rum
  • 1 cup seltzer
  • Mint sprigs, lime wedges, or fresh strawberries, to garnish

  • In a medium pitcher, combine the strawberries, lime juice, sugar, and mint leaves and crush with a muddler or wooden spoon until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. Add the rum and stir gently.
  • Fill 4 rocks glasses three-quarters full with ice, divide the mojito among them, and top each with about 1/4 cup seltzer. Garnish with mint sprigs, lime wedges, or strawberries.

    Yum! The strawberries, lime, rum, and mint play together so well, with fruity, bright, and herbal flavors. Great early summer drink!
