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.

well I love it. I thought we had rum and didn't used gin instead, yummy

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

Whoa, I don't hardly ever enjoy alcoholic drinks, but this is just perfect! Refreshing, flavorful and wonderful for summer. Will definitely make these again!

Not only delicious and refreshing, but a great way to use up the unsightly, bruised berries that you get in every basket.

A very light and refreshing drink for the summer and a great way to use a few extra stawberries!
