- white rum - Also known as light or silver rum. You can substitute a dark rum, though it may slightly change the flavor. The main reason we're using white rum is that it doesn't change the color of the cocktail.
- what makes this a refreshing cocktail is the fresh berries and fruit - fresh limes, fresh strawberries, and garnished with a sprig of mint!
- club soda - the best substitute for club soda is seltzer. You can also use soda water.
- sugar cube (optional) - no sugar cube? Instead add a teaspoon or two of sugar.

- Highball Glass or a tall glass typically used to serve a Strawberry Mojito
- You'll also need a muddler - though in a pinch you can also use the back of a wooden spoon.
The end of a wooden spoon or even a French rolling pin will work great!
If the mint steeps in the cocktail too long the leaves can turn bitter
No, don't reuse the leaves, use fresh ones for each cocktail.
Typically a highball glass; a tall thin glass.
You don't have to use the best rum, get a good mixing rum.
- Make a Strawberry Mojito Mocktail by simply leaving out the rum. Adding a splash of simple syrup and topping with lemon-lime soda will make it perfectly sweet!
- Switch up the flavors by swapping lime with lemon for a Strawberry Lemon Mojito.
- Rim the side of the glass by with a small amount of sugar for extra sweetness.
- Mojitos are muddled and stirred, not shaken, so you won't need a cocktail shaker.
