Since I noticed it was strawberry season, strawberries have been constantly on my mind. I can’t stop thinking of delicious things to do with them! Oh, you charming strawberry, you have truly stolen my heart. Well, when I found myself this week with a heart for strawberries, an excess of fresh mint, and a lingering desire to continue to celebrate strawberry season, what was I to do?
Why, I was to make a strawberry mojito martini, of course! Make a mint simple syrup, puree some fresh strawberries, add a dash of lime and a healthy dash of vodka 😉 and you’ve got the most refreshing, delightful summer drink you could think of. To make it virgin, substitute the vodka with sparkling water and serve it in a champagne glass!
I’ve always loved mojitos. To me, the icy cold minty drink is best enjoyed in the spring and summer time. Although I know it’s not groundbreaking, I’ve never tried a mojito in martini form, and loved enjoying it that way with fresh strawberries! As the days here start to push 90 degrees, this simple little martini has become my go-to for a refreshing warm weather cocktail.
