This Strawberry Mojito recipe is the perfect summer cocktail. Mint, rum and lime juice combine with delicious strawberries in this refreshing cocktail. 

Now that the warm weather is here, there are certain cocktails that I can’t wait to sit and sip on the patio with – margaritas, moscow mules, gin & tonics, and of course mojitos

Which is why both my traditional mojito recipe and my creamy coconut mojitos have been on repeat at our house lately (recipe coming soon). 

And today I’m here with another fun twist on the classic mojito recipe. 

Strawberry Mojitos

It’s like a strawberry daiquiri and mojito in one – and it’s so delicious!

What is the Best Rum for a Mojito?

Use light rum in this easy mojito recipe (also called silver rum or white rum). Since rum is the only alcohol in the drink, you want to be sure to use a rum that you love. However, this is also not the time to reach for your most expensive bottle of rum, since its flavor will become diluted. 

Here are some of the rums for a Mojito, that come in at under $30 a bottle: 

  • Bacardi Silver
  • Mount Gay Eclipse Silver Rum
  • Cruzan Aged White Rum
  • Havana Club Anejo Blanco Puerto Rican Rum 

Strawberry Mojito Ingredients: 

  • Rum: white rum or silver rum 
  • Lime Juice: fresh squeezed
  • Fresh Mint
  • Strawberries 
  • Club Soda
  • Simple Syrup
