Strawberry Mojito

May 4, 2020

This adult beverage was a refreshing reward after a day of building a new garden and transplanting my strawberry plants. You can always turn this into a sparkling strawberry-mint mocktail by omitting the rum and upping the lime juice to 6 oz and the club soda or sparkling water to 8 oz total (for 2 servings). Cheers!
