Let’s talk about cocktails. We love them. You probably love them. We all wish we could have sugary cocktails all day long and lounge by the pool… but then we would gain ten pounds and have a massive hangover. So instead we can make skinny mojitos! The strawberries add just a touch of sweetness that is natural and fresh. By mixing strawberries, mint, lime, club soda & rum together, you have a simple and fresh mix of flavors that can also help you get your buzz on.
First take a glass and add your mint.
Then your strawberries…
Then take the blunt end of a wooden spoon or spatula and crush the ingredients until juices begin to run and mint is fragrant.
Add club soda and rum and garnish with a strawberry and some mint.
20 mint leaves
1 lime, sliced
16 oz. club soda
4 oz. clear rum
Take 2 glasses. In each glass add 10 mint leaves, 4 chopped strawberries and ½ lime. With the blunt end of a kitchen utensil, muddle the ingredients until mint is fragrant and juices run together. Add 8 oz. of club soda and 2 oz. of rum. Garnish with a strawberry and mint leaf.
