It may seem a little early in the game to make this call… but we’re calling it: this is the official beverage of Summer 2019. At least, it’s what we’ll be sipping on all summer!
Whether down the shore or enjoying from the city, this cocktail is the perfect daytime refreshment—with just the right amount of freshness, sweetness, and sourness. This isn’t a one-and-done cocktail that becomes “too much” after the first take. In fact, these almost go down too easy. Remember, life is all about #balance. And to ensure a slightly healthier experience from the traditional mojito, we replaced granulated sugar with agave nectar. Otherwise, mojitos are already pretty legit! Not much else to say here, folks. Happy imbibing!
- 1/4 cup club soda
- 3 oz white rum
- juice of 1/2 lime
- 2-3 tsp agave nectar (depending on how sweet you like it)
- 2 strawberries, chopped
- 4-5 mint leaves, plus more for serving
- Place strawberries, mint leaves, lime juice, and agave in a bowl or in the bottom of a glass. Muddle until thoroughly combined, then transfer to a glass (if you used a bowl for muddling).
- Fill the glass with ice, then pour over rum and club soda. Gently stir to combine. Garnish with extra mint leaves and/or a lime wedge, and enjoy!
