As summer draws to a close, we thought we’d share one more summer inspired drink to remind us of warmer and more relaxing days.

Strawberry Basil Mojito

1.5 oz Rum
1 tsp Sugar
1 cup Ripe Strawberries, chopped
10 Basil Leaves
4 Mint Leaves
1 oz Lime Juice
Splash Soda Water
Strawberry Sugar

Strawberry Basil Mojito

Muddle basil, mint, sugar and lime juice in base of a shaker glass. Add strawberries and continue to muddle. Add rum and ice and shake. Rim glass with strawberry sugar. Fill glass with ice and strain muddled rum mixture into the glass and top with club soda. Garnish with basil leaves.

How to make Strawberry Sugar… Just blend together freeze-dried strawberries and cane sugar!
