Strawberry Mojitos!

Happy 4th of July!

If you’ve been following along, you know that we started a Strawberry Rum infusion about a month ago. The strawberry flavor is now quite nice. And while I’m not quite ready to strain and filter the entire infusion, we can easily pour off some of the liquor to use in cocktails.

And to kick-start our holiday celebrating, we decided to test out some strawberry mojitos on July 3rd.

Strawberry Mojito (adapted from Allrecipes)

(makes one drink)

10 mint leaves

1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges

1/2 to 1 TB white sugar (or to taste)

2 oz Strawberry-Infused Rum

4 oz. club soda

ice

Muddle mint with 1-2 ice cubes in a sturdy glass. Add sugar. Squeeze 3 of the lime wedges into the glass, add the rind and muddle well. Fill glass with ice, add Strawberry-Infused Rum and club soda. Stir, and garnish with final lime wedge, and if desired more mint or fresh strawberries.

This drink turned out just as good as I had hoped. We loved them so much, we quickly had another! I have a feeling this Strawberry Booze will not last long…

If you are hoping to make these for your holiday festivities, you could muddle a few fresh strawberries into the glass, and just use regular rum.

What a perfect holiday refreshment.

Have a fun and safe holiday – Cheers!

  1. Looks great- maybe try a strawberry caipirinha using the infused rum as well?

  2. as usual this looks delicious! do you recommend a white rum or spiced for the infusion?

    • I used a white rum, which is also what I would recommend. I’m not sure I would like the flavor of the spiced rum with the strawberry. But if you have some spiced rum you’re looking to get rid of, it couldn’t hurt to try it. You never know! I think I would like the spiced rum with an apple or pear infusion, or possibly even cherry.

  3. I HAVE been following along! :) These little drinks looks fantastic!!

    • Thank you Kelli! Wish you could have had one with us! … you and your special 2 strawberry seasons… I guess I shouldn’t complain, it seems my family wants me to pick more raspberries, and the marionberries are now starting to ripen.

      • It’s really too hot here for much of a raspberry season….so they are WAY expensive! What are marionberries? I’ve never heard of them – or maybe they go by a different name here.

      • marionberries are a hybrid blackberry that is grown almost solely in the Pacific NW. It is perfect for our climate (although many cane berries – especially blackberries grow so wild here that they can take over fields). Marionberries are long and slender, and have a distinct flavor that is more tart than a standard blackberry. And since my family grows marionberries, raspberries and blueberries, I get to make preserves and infusions for free! (where have all my jars gone?)

      • Lucky girl! Free berries anytime you want!
