Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. strawberries fresh or frozen
  • ¼ cup lime juice equals 4-5 limes
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup fresh mint plus more for garnish
  • 1-2 bottles club soda

Instructions

For The Simple Syrup:

  • Add ½ cup water to a small saucepan and heat the water to medium-low but do not bring to a boil.
  • Add ½ cup sugar to the water and stir until all of the sugar has dissolved.
  • Once dissolved, pour the simple syrup into a glass container (a mason jar works great) and allow to cool. (The simple syrup can be made and cooled ahead of time).

For The Strawberry Puree:

  • Thoroughly wash 1 lb. of fresh strawberries. You can also use frozen strawberries if you prefer. If using frozen strawberries, place them in a strainer in the sink and allow to thaw before use.
  • Hull the strawberries or simply chop the green stems off with a knife. Cut the strawberries in halves or quarters, depending on the size of the berry.
  • Add 1 lb. of chopped strawberries, ¼ cup of fresh lime juice (equals 2-3 limes), ¼ cup fresh mint, and ¼ cup of the cooled simple syrup to a blender. You can also use an immersion blender. (You can add the full ½ cup of simply syrup if you like a little extra sweetness).
  • Blend until the mixture is totally combined. The texture should be smooth and easy to pour.

Assemble The Mocktails:

  • Fill a highball glass with ice. Pour ⅓ cup or so of the strawberry puree over the ice (the glass should be ⅔ full).
  • Top the strawberry puree with club soda. Fill until the glass is totally full. Stir until combined. Garnish with fresh mint and a wedge of lime and serve immediately.
    Feel free to add 1.5 oz. of white rum to each glass if you'd like to make it into a cocktail.

Notes

  • It's important that the simple syrup cool completely before adding it to the mojito.
  • You can make the simple syrup ahead of time and store it in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Any leftover simple syrup may be stored this way as well.
  • Any leftover puree may be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
