Strawberry Mojito

Strawberry Mojitos

Adapted from white on rice couple, who adapted it from the berry bible
Time: 10 minutes  Makes: 1

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
3 fresh strawberries
4-5 fresh spearmint sprigs, chopped or torn into smaller pieces
1/2 lime
2 ounces light rum (optional, leave it out for a virgin mojito)
club soda

1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Bring to a boil and boil until the mixture is clear. Remove from heat and let cool. Store extra in the refrigerator.

2. In a tall glass, add 3 tablespoons simple syrup, the strawberries, and the mint and muddle together with the back of a spoon or a muddler.

3. Squeeze the juice from the lime into the glass, add the rum and stir well.

4. Fill the glass with ice and top off with soda water.
