    About this recipe: If you love the classic mojito and fresh strawberries, you will love this drink. Lime juice, mint, strawberries, sugar, white rum and sparkling water are stirred together and served in a sugar-rimmed glass.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 2 tablespoons caster sugar, for rimming
    • 2 large limes, quartered
    • 1/2 bunch mint leaves
    • 7 strawberries, quartered
    • 200g caster sugar

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Pour 5mm to 1cm of sugar onto a small, shallow plate. Run one of the lime quarters around the rim of each cocktail glass, then dip the glasses into the sugar to rim; set aside.
    2. Squeeze all of the lime quarters into a sturdy glass jug. Toss the juiced limes into the jug along with the mint, strawberries and 200g of sugar. Crush the fruits together with a spoon to release the juices from the strawberries and the oil from the mint leaves. Stir in the rum and sprakling water until the sugar has dissolved. Pour into the sugared glasses over ice cubes to serve.

    Excellent recipe...but I kinda took a left turn with the directions though. I made a simple syrup out of 1/2 cup sugar, 1 1/2 cups lemon juice and 2 cups mashed strawberries - brought that to a boil, simmered for 3 minutes, removed from heat and strained through a cheesecloth and let cool. NOW...add 2 tbsp of the strawberry syrup to a glass, then add your mint and lime, muddle, add 1 shot of rum, top with Club Soda and ice cubes...and voila! Delish!  -  18 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
