Strawberry Mojitos – by the pitcher

IMG_5769

My brother, Dallas (Kassandra’s husband) is really good at making mojitos. Every time I come over, I request one (or three!). He complains the whole time because the process is so time consuming. Kassandra and I went on a quest to make mojitos by the pitcher. These are so good, you guys! You’ll be glad you made the whole pitcher- you will definitely want more than just one!

Makes 8-10 glasses.

Ingredients:

  • 60-80 – Mint Leaves (fresh)
  • 20 oz – Lime Juice (or juice about 20 limes)
  • 1 1/2 cups – Sugar
  • 2 cups – White Rum (Bacardi is our favorite)
  • 3 cans – Club Soda
  • 1 can – Strawberry Juice (we used Jumex)
  • Strawberries and Lime wedges for garnish

Directions:

  1. Place lime juice, sugar, and mint into pitcher.
  2. Using a muddler, mash to release mint oil and dissolve sugar into lime juice.
  3. Add rum and club soda. Mix well.
  4. Pour into glass with ice. Top with a splash of strawberry juice.
  5. Garnish with strawberry and lime wedges.

Enjoy!
