Perfect Summer Cocktail: Strawberry Ginger Mojito | Cute Beltz

strawberry-rhubarb-mojitos-3

When the days start getting longer, and the weather gets a little warmer, I start dreaming of one thing: strawberry mojitos. It’s my favorite drink during the summer months and I’ll take any excuse I can to make ‘em. They’re sweet with fresh strawberries and mint and the perfect light drink for any summer meal. But my twist on the strawberry mojito is to add a little bit of ginger liqueur. It adds a slightly spicy kick that’s perfect for an afternoon barbecue.

Strawberry & Ginger Mojito
Total time: 5 minutes Serves: 1

 Ingredients

  • 6 mint leaves
  • 2 ripe strawberries, quartered
  • 1.5 oz light rum
  • 0.5 oz ginger liqueur (or ginger syrup)*
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz simple syrup or agave Ice Soda water or sparkling water

* Ginger liqueur or syrup can be difficult to find at the grocery store, but there are many recipes online for making your own in only 15-20 minutes. Otherwise your local specialty beverage store should carry it!

Directions

Muddle mint leaves and strawberries together in cocktail shaker. Add lime juice, rum, simple syrup, and ginger liqueur. Fill the shaker a little over half way with ice and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds.

Pour into a tall glass and top with soda water. Garnish with a strawberry or mint leaf.
