I had so many strawberries leftover that I had bought from the avocado and strawberry salsa .. decided to use them up in a fun mojito cocktail! ♥
3 strawberries, sliced
10 mint leaves, chopped
Juice of 1/2 lime
1.5 oz rum
1 tsp. powdered strawberry drink mix, like Crystal Light
1 tbsp. mint simple syrup
Seltzer water or Club Soda
1) Take the strawberry slices, chopped mint leaves and the lime juice and muddle at the bottom of a cocktail shaker until combined.
2) To the muddled mixture, add the rum, strawberry drink mix and simple syrup to the cocktail shaker. Shake for about 10-15 seconds until the liquid is fully combined with the muddled fruit.
3) Fill a glass with ice – pour the mixture from the cocktail shaker into the glass and then fill the remainder of the glass with seltzer or club soda. enjoy! ♥
