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.
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.
