Summer is in full swing and, for now, the temps are in the low 80’s. For me, this is the perfect temperature to enjoy the outdoors. Today, I will be taking my children to the pool and you can find me lounging in the lazy river.
I would love to have brunch sitting on this balcony, oui?
For each mojito, you will need
4-5 fresh strawberries, depending on size
Small handful of fresh mint leaves
3 oz simple syrup (even amounts of sugar and water, heated until the sugar melts, and cooled to room temperature)
2 oz rum
1 1/2 tsp fresh lime juice
Place strawberries, mint, and some ice (crushed ice works best) in a tall glass. Muddle the ingredients together with the back of a spoon (or a muddler if you have one.) Add simple syrup, rum, and lime juice. Pour in enough club soda to fill the glass. Give the mixture a stir, and garnish with fresh strawberries and lime slices.
Bon weekend! I hope it’s beautiful where you are.
