Strawberry Mojito
created by Traci York

For the Mint Simple Syrup (Yields enough for 2-3 Servings):
1/2 cup sugar or evaporated cane juice
1/2 cup water
2 mint leaves

For the Mojito (yields one drink):
1/2 in Lime cut into 4 wedges 3 wedges cut 1/2, save the last wedge for garnish.
4-8 whole mint leaves Whole Mint
4 large strawberries (3 cut in quarters for muddling; 1 for garnish)
1 1/2 oz. mint simple syrup cooled
2 oz. light rum
Watermelon DRY

To make the Mint Simple Syrup:
Pour the sugar and water in a two-quart saucepan, then add the mint and bring to a boil. Stir. Boil until all the sugar is dissolved. Set aside to steep for 10 minutes and allow the syrup to cool. Remove the mint leaves and pour into a lidded container for storage in the refrigerator until ready to use.

For the Mojito:
In a 16 oz. highball glass, layer the cut lime wedges, mint leaves, and three quartered strawberries. Pour in the simple syrup and use a muddler to muddle the mixture for about 30 seconds. The goal is to squeeze out the lime juice, mash the berries and to allow the mint to release its oils. There should be bits of strawberries left when muddling is complete. Add the light rum to the muddled mixture, then add crushed ice. Top off with Watermelon DRY. Stir well. Garnish with a lime wedge, medium strawberry, and mint stem.
