Try this perfect summer drink – Strawberry Mojito!
Maybe to you cocktails mean weekend or holiday, but i found that some days a cocktail like this is really refreshing after work.
First make the simple syrup. combine 1 cup water and 230 gr sugar in a medium saucepan. heat until sugar is completely dissolved. leave it to cool, then store in the fridge until ready to use.
For one glass:
40 ml of simple syrup
about 3-4 strawberries
about 10 fresh mint leaves (chopped or whole)
juice from ½ lemon
60 ml of light rum
In a big glass put the simple syrup, strawberries and mint leaves and smash them together with the back of a spoon. Add the lemon juice and rum and stir well. Put a lot of ice and fill the glass with soda water. Garnish with mint sprigs and strawberries, sit on your terrace and enjoy!
