If there’s a part one, a part two should follow… Don’t confuse these with a strawberry mojito, although the leftover juice is good enough to drink. This recipe makes use of our ample supply of fresh mint. Eat these by themselves or drizzled over pound cake or baked goat cheese and honey.
- 1 pint strawberries (washed, hulled and sliced thin)
- 1 cup fresh mint
- 2 tbsp rum
- 1 tbsp honey
- juice from half a lemon
- 1 tbsp sugar (optional)
Puree mint, lemon juice, honey and rum in a blender. In a large bowl, toss puree with strawberries. Refrigerate for 1-4 hours to let flavors meld. Taste after about 30 minutes and add sugar if desired to increase sweetness.
