Super easy pitcher of strawberry mojito is perfect for any cocktail party. Refreshing, fun and irresistibly tasty!
Happy Friday! Welcome to my new series: Drinks!
Every Friday, I’ll be sharing with you delicious, crowd-pleasing drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Are you excited?
Entertaining guests should be fun and simple, and this applies to drink menu as well. Instead of sweating about full service bar, simply offer your guests one or two signature cocktails in batch, wine and beer. And don’t forget some water and non-alcoholic punches.
I love big pitcher drinks! They are easy and can be prepared in advance and refrigerated until you’re ready to serve.
Today, I prepared this beautiful strawberry mojito that is delicious with or without rum! Prepare two batches, one with rum, and one without, so that everyone can enjoy it.
Macerate the strawberries with mint and lime earlier in the day. And then add the ice and liquids right before guests arrive. Easy-peasy, yes?
Not too sweet, fruity and refreshing, this mojito will be a huge hit at your party. Macerated strawberries are not overpowering, yet adds playful hint of flavor and color.
- 3 cups sliced strawberries
- 8-10 mint sprigs
- ½ cup 100gr sugar
- 2 limes
- 2 cups 480ml club soda
- 1 cup 240ml white rum
- 1 tray of ice cubes
- In a medium bowl, mash strawberries, mint and sugar with a muddler. (Or even potato masher will work too.) Set aside to macerate for 15-30 minutes.
- Add quartered limes and muddle again. When ready to serve, transfer the mixture into a large pitcher with ice, add club soda and rum and stir.
