Strawberry & Ginger Mojito
Total time: 5 minutes
6 mint leaves
2 ripe strawberries, quartered
1.5 oz light rum
0.5 oz ginger liqueur (or ginger syrup)*
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz simple syrup or agave
Soda water or sparkling water
* Ginger liqueur or syrup can be difficult to find at the grocery store, but there are many recipes online for making your own in only 15-20 minutes. Otherwise your local specialty beverage store should carry it!
Muddle mint leaves and strawberries together in cocktail shaker. Add lime juice, rum, simple syrup, and ginger liqueur. Fill the shaker a little over half way with ice and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds.
Pour into a tall glass and top with soda water. Garnish with a strawberry or mint leaf. As for my style tip? The red drink goes perfectly with a fresh white mani.
