The perfect 'red' to add to your 4th of July menu! This will become a popular drink around my house in the summer, especially with so many strawberries on sale this time of year.
Strawberry Mojito (from All Recipes)
3 limes, halved
1/2 bunch mint leaves plus 5 leaves chopped
7 large strawberries, quartered plus 5 slices medium/thin
1 cup white sugar
1 cup white rum
2.25 cup club soda
5 cups ice
Squeeze lime juice into pitcher and reserve skins. Add 1/2 bunch of mint, quartered strawberries and sugar. Muddle until the mint and berries and crushed.
Add rum and club soda and mix until sugar is dissolved. Add additional mint and berries, followed by ice.
