Happy Hour- Strawberry Mojito

Ingredients:

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup water

3 whole strawberries, hulled and sliced

Handful of mint leaves (plus more garnishing)

4 ounces rum (of your choice)

Juice of half a lime

Sparkling water or club soda

Directions:

In a small pot, make simple syrup by combining sugar and water together and melting over medium heat until all the sugar has dissolved. Set aside and let cool in the fridge. It takes quite a while for the syrup to get cold enough so I double this and keep a jar in the fridge to use for other cocktails.

In 2 glasses, place 3 strawberry pieces in each glass and add 2-3 mint leaves on top. Juice about a tsp. of lime juice into each glass. Using a mortar and pestle or the back of a spoon, gently muddle the strawberries, mint, and lime juice together until the strawberries and mint begin to macerate. At this time, put 1-2 tbsp of the cooled simple syrup into the glass, add the rum (evenly in each glass), ice cubes, then fill the rest of the glass with sparkling water or club soda. Garnish with more mint leaves and a slice of lime.
