Strawberry Mojitos – fresh strawberries put a delicious twist on the classic Mojito. It’s a delicious and refreshing drink to serve at your summer cookouts, by the pool or for a Girl’s Night.
I’ve fallen in love with the Mojito.
It’s a simple drink, but there are truly so many possibilities for it. I’d never even had one until I’d gone to a food blogging conference last year. It was blueberry and it was so incredibly delicious. I was hooked right then and there.
Fast forward to a #foodbloggersleepover at Mary’s house about a month ago and Holly’s making us her fantastic version of a Mojito. Needless to say, it was an incredible few days as it usually is when we’re together. We laughed until our sides hurt, but we also talked a lot about blogging and actually did teach each other a thing or two in the process, believe it or not.
Great friends, delicious food and drinks plus LOTS of laughs, what’s better than that?

I made my Strawberry Mojitos in a 2-quart pitcher, so that we could keep any extra in the fridge. Be sure to give it a good stir before you pour as the strawberry purée will settle at the bottom.
I also used this muddler to blend the strawberries and mint. I love it because it doesn’t crush the mint leaves as other muddlers might, but gently bends them together to bring out their flavor.
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 16 ounces fresh strawberries hulled and quartered, divided plus additional for garnish
- 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 3/4 cup Simple Syrup
- 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
- Club Soda
- fresh whole strawberries and lime wedges for garnish
In a small sauce pan, combine the water and granulated sugar over medium heat.
Bring to a boil and cook until sugar has dissolved (water will be clear).
Allow to cool and store any leftover Simple Syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Into a blender pour 3 cups of the strawberries and the lime juice.
Blend until smooth.
In a 2 quart pitcher, combine the remaining strawberries with the fresh mint leaves. Using a muddler, gently blend the mint and strawberries together.
Add the strawberry purée and 3/4 cup of the Simple Syrup.
Add 2 cups of ice and add as much club soda as desired. Mix well.
Add more ice and more Simple Syrup if a sweeter Strawberry Mojito is desired.
