Strawberry Mojito Cocktail Recipe


Adapted from The Berry Bible

The simple syrup recipe is for a larger batch of simple syrup to keep on hand. It keeps for months in the fridge if you store it in a clean container.


  • 1 ounce (30ml) simple syrup
  • about 3 fresh strawberries
  • 4-5 fresh spearmint sprigs (chopped if you prefer smaller mint pieces in your cocktail)
  • 1 ounce (30ml) fresh lime juice
  • 2 ounces (60ml) light rum
  • 3-4 ounces (90-120ml) soda water


  1. In a chilled highball glass (about 10-12 ounces), muddle the simple syrup, strawberries and mint leaves together with the back of a spoon or muddler. Crush the strawberries and mint leaves well.
  2. Stir in the lime juice and rum. Fill the glass with ice and top off with soda water. Gently stir.
  3. Garnish with mint sprigs or strawberry slices.

Note 1: A basic simple syrup is a 1:1 ratio of sugar dissolved in water. example- One cup sugar dissolved in one cup of water. We usually make larger batches and keep on hand in the refrigerator.
