You read it correctly. Strawberry. Basil. Mojitos.
This recipe came about when I bought, like, 5 lbs of strawberries on sale and I was frankly sick of eating them everyday.
What better way to utilize the strawberries then to put them in booze. I mean come on. This is basically summer in a glass my friends.
I know it’s not your average Mojito, but this twist takes the mojito to a whole new level. And it’s damn good level.
Try it out and let me know what you guys think in the comments below. I love hearing from you all 🙂
Strawberry Basil Mojitos
- 12 lime slices
- 10 basil leaves
- 10 strawberries, sliced
- 8 tbsps sugar
- 8 oz rum
- 4 cups club soda
- Place basil leaves and 6 lime slices into a large pitcher or bowl. Use a muddler to crush the basil and lime to release basil oils and lime juice.
- Add the rest of the lime slices and sugar. Muddle again just to release lime juice.
- Add sliced strawberries and muddle just until crushed slightly and juices start releasing.
- Mix in liquid ingredients. (Do not strain the mixture) Serve over ice. Enjoy!
