Mojitos are always a great choice for serving up during the warmer months of the year and adding fresh strawberries makes it even more enjoyable.
This is a fun, creative drink you can share with friends on the back patio all summer long. If you’re hosting a summer shindig and looking for a way to dazzle your guests, this gorgeous summer cocktail will do it.
The good news, mixing a strawberry mojito is just as easy as the classic or this delicious pineapple mojito. The secret (as always) is in the muddling! When you muddle the mint and strawberries together it will release their flavors and your cocktail will taste even more delicious.
Strawberry Mojito Recipe Ingredients
This recipe calls for fresh strawberries, mint leaves and two teaspoons of lime juice along with sugar and rum.
Strawberries: Sliced and muddled to release the strawberry flavors.
Mint: The cool mint with strawberries is a delicious combination.
Lime Juice: Adds the needed brightness of citrus.
Rum: White (or light) rum is the preferred liquor. This is not the drink to switch out and try a spiced or dark rum. The white rum is light on flavor, letting the fresh ingredients shine through.
Simple Syrup: To sweeten, simple syrup is the easiest and my choice, but a traditional mojito uses fine sugar. Either works well to add a little sweetness otherwise, this drink would be too tart for any enjoyment.
If you’re using fine sugar, it’s heavier and will settle in the bottom of your glass. Make sure you take a little extra time to stir it until the sugar is fully dissolved.
Club Soda: The final strawberry mojito ingredient is club soda, which gives this cocktail the perfect little fizz.

How to Make a Strawberry Mojito
Step 1: Clean and slice your strawberries first.
You’ll need 2-3 sliced strawberries to muddle per drink. When I have extra strawberries, I’ll add several extra slices to each drink at the end for an added little snack once they soak up a little rum.
Step 2: In each glass, place the 2-3 sliced strawberries along with 3-4 mint leaves in the bottom. Add two teaspoons of freshly squeezed lime juice and lightly muddle (which is lightly mashing) everything together. A muddler is easiest to use, but you can improvise with a thick-handled wooden spoon or similar tool.
Make sure you don’t over-muddle. The strawberries should be in a few smaller pieces (not a puree) and the mint leaves should stay mostly intact. Lightly bruising the mint is all that is needed to release the mint oil.
Step 3: Pour in the rum and simple syrup and stir.
Step 4: Add in an extra slice or two of strawberries if you desire.
Step 5: Add ice and top off with club soda.
Step 6: Garnish with mint and start sipping!
