Perfect for sunny afternoons or winding down after a hectic day, this drink is the essence of relaxation without the alcohol. But if you’re looking for a bit of kick, don’t worry, we’ve got a variation for that too!
- While lemons give a distinct zesty flavor, feel free to substitute them with limes for a slightly different twist.
- If you’re serving for a crowd or just yourself, remember this recipe can be effortlessly halved or doubled.
- If you’re prepping in advance, store the crushed strawberries, lemon, and mint mixture in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a day. When you’re ready to serve, add the sparkling water or soda, garnish, and enjoy!
- Strawberries: Fresh, ripe strawberries not only offer a vibrant red hue but also a naturally sweet flavor.
- Lemon: This adds a tart kick, balancing the sweetness of the strawberries.
- Sparkling Water/Soda: Use your preference to bring the effervescence and lightness to the mocktail.
- Mint Leaves: These add an aromatic freshness, a characteristic element of a mojito.
- Ice: For that instant coolness on a hot day.
- Begin by preparing your strawberries and lemon. Once they’re appropriately sliced, add them into a jug along with the mint leaves. Use a muddler or the back end of a wooden spoon to gently crush the ingredients, releasing their flavors.
- Choose either sparkling water or a light-colored soda, and pour it into the mixture. Gently stir everything together to ensure the flavors meld.
- If desired, toss in some ice to make your drink super refreshing. Before serving, garnish with whole strawberries and a slice of lemon.
Boozy Strawberry Mojito: If you’re in the mood for an alcoholic twist, add 1-2 ounces of white rum or vodka to the mix. Adjust according to taste.
Berry Blend Mojito: Experiment with other berries like blueberries or raspberries for a mixed berry delight.
Herbal Infusion: If mint isn’t your favorite, try basil for an earthy touch or even rosemary for a sophisticated twist.
