Strawberry picking season is here. Farms just opened in our neighborhood but we have already been there many times. Have you ever felt the difference between store bought strawberry and a fresh one?
Well, you take one juicy slurpy bite out of a fresh strawberry and you can feel the fresh strawberry melt in your mouth. Before you know it, you pick up the next one and the next one. Okay, that’s all me. Please don’t judge me, I just can’t resist a fresh strawberry! 🙂
I wish I could plant strawberries and other fruits in my garden. Hopefully next year. We have been planting veggies though. Mint came out great this year, just in time for my summer recipes. Looking at these fresh strawberries and the fresh mint, making this mojito was a no-brainer.
If you ever had traditional mojito, you know it has rum in it. Since I do not include alcohol in my recipes, I made this non alcoholic version. You can always add rum to make the taste to your liking. I also try to make healthier version, so instead of adding sugar, I added honey to get the touch of sweetness.
Strawberries are not only delicious, they are a great source of antioxidants. Same with mint. Lime is great source if vitamin C. There you have it! Fresh and delicious strawberry mojito that is also healthy and perfect for the hot summer days.
To make this strawberry mojito, you need to mash the strawberries and mint with a potato masher or a fork. You can also place these two ingredients in two glasses and muddle them until mashed.
Add lime juice and honey and mix well. Place half of this mix in one glass and rest in the other.
Top up the glasses with soda water and add ice cubes. Garnish with strawberries and mint leaves.
If you are serving to the guests and want to make it more decorative, place some white granulated sugar in a plate. Put some honey on the edges of the glasses and stick the sugar on glass edges by placing the glasses upside down into the plate holding sugar.
Enjoy this refreshing, healthy and delicious drink on hot summer days!
If you happen to make this sometime, please upload on Instagram and hashtag with #thisgirlsrecipes. I’d love to see your recipes!
