Why not enjoy World Cup fever with a delicious cold Mojito…
A mojito is traditionally made with white rum, muddled mint and lime juice, and soda water. Strawberries make this cocktail both sweeter and more tart—a nice match for bold amber rum or more subtle white rum.
11 oz. strawberries, hulled (2-3/4 cups)
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup granulated sugar
10 large fresh mint leaves
1 cup white or amber rum
1 cup soda water
Mint sprigs, lime wedges, or fresh strawberries, to garnish
Fill 4 long glasses three-quarters full with ice, divide the mojito among them, and top each with about 1/4 cup soda water. Garnish with mint sprigs, lime wedges, or strawberries.
