Strawberry Mojitos

These strawberries are not quite in season

These strawberries are not quite in season

We wish really good strawberries would arrive soon. Until then we’ll keep drowning the substandard ones we’re buying — in hopes they’re the real deal — in alcohol.

Strawberry Mojitos

  • 2 large strawberries
  • 1-2 sugar cubes
  • 4 mint leaves
  • 1 1/2 oz rum
  • tonic water

In the bottom of a Collins glass muddle the strawberries, mint and sugar. Top with rum and a few ice cubes. Fill glass with tonic water. The drink can be strained before the tonic water is added to remove the pulp. We enjoyed the drink both ways.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

  3. I am so making this one…I have been making concoctions of berries+vodka+lavender+rose petals+mint+honey, mixed with crushed ice. It is very hot here in the Bay Area tonight! I call this drink Aphrodites Loins :)

  4. If only the rain would stop and the weather warm-up, we could enjoy a few of these on the porch…
    Even a Non-Cocktail gal like me could do THIS :)

    Our weather isn’t quite there yet but this does look great for the summer.

    Nothing like beer (or mojito) goggles to make a strawberry look in season. ;)
