Strawberry Mojito

The simple syrup recipe in the Notes is for a larger batch of simple syrup to keep on hand. It keeps for months in the fridge if you store it in a clean container. If you don't want to make the simple syrup (although it always great to have on hand) you can muddle in about 1 tablespoon (or to taste) of sugar instead.

  • 1 ounce (30 ml) simple syrup , or to taste
  • 3 (3 ) fresh strawberries (approximiately)
  • 6-8 (4 ) fresh spearmint leaves (chopped if you prefer smaller mint pieces in your cocktail)
  • 1 ounce (30 ml) fresh lime juice
  • 2 ounces (60 ml) light rum
  • 3-4 ounces (180-240 ml) soda water


  • Add the simple syrup, strawberries and mint leaves into a highball glass. Muddle them together with the back of a spoon or muddler. Crush the strawberries and mint leaves well.
  • Stir in the lime juice and rum. Fill the glass with ice.  Top off with soda water. Gently stir.
  • Garnish with mint sprigs or strawberry slices.


Note 1: Simple syrup is a 1:1 ratio of sugar dissolved in water. Example- One cup sugar dissolved in one cup of water. We usually make larger batches and keep on hand in the refrigerator. If possible, make ahead of time and use cooled or preferably chilled when making the cocktails.
