What I love about this refreshing strawberry mojito, is that it relies on the sweetness of the strawberries and skips simple syrup all together. This recipe is from my recipe book, Skinny-Size It (Publisher: Harlequin Non-Fiction)!
1 lime wedge, sliced into 6 wedges
8 fresh mint leaves, plus 2 mint sprigs for garnishing
4 strawberries, stems removed and cut in half, plus 2 whole strawberries for garnishing
2 ounces white rum
1. Place 3 limed wedges and 4 mint leaves in each of 2 glasses and lightly mash in the bottom of the glass with a spoon or wooden muddler. Then add 2 strawberries to each glass and lightly muddle.
2. Top each glass with rum, club soda, and ice. Garnish each with a strawberry and sprig of mint, and serve at once.
