strawberry mojitos

Refreshing strawberry mojitos with fresh mint and berries. Perfect cocktail for a hot summer day!

I dabbled in making mojitos in college and it didn’t work out so well. You see, my friends and I decided that to cut calories, we would substitute sugar for Splenda.

If you’re thinking that doesn’t seem like the wisest decision for a group of girls headed toward college degrees, then you would be 100% correct.

We drank the sucrose-laden muddled mint cocktails but I will tell you that we 100% regretted it the next day.

Luckily, since our Splenda concoction tastes absolutely nothing like actual mojitos, I wasn’t soured for life and will still drink the occasional minty rum cocktail. Okay, maybe more than occasionally in the summertime but that’s beside the point.

The point is that these strawberry mojitos are a warm weather staple that you need to make immediately, if not sooner. Use fresh berries if you have the in-season, but if not, frozen unsweetened berries that have been defrosted are fine to substitute. I’ve made these with other berries, too — blueberries, raspberries, whatever flavor it is you like the most.

    For those of you who are inclined to do so, mint is easy to grow, but can be invasive if you plant it in a garden bed. It’s a perennial plant and will come back each year without any effort on your part. I would suggest getting a packet of seeds and planting them in a large pot on your patio. You may have to thin the seedlings once they sprout, but you’ll have more than enough mint to make plenty of mojitos. Enjoy!

    Ugh. I’m sad to say I used to drink diet coke and vodka. (SO glad those days are behind me.) Love that you are finding lots of ways to honor the strawberry, especially when they involve rum (without a sugar-substitute in sight.) Cheers!
