Strawberry mojito

If you love a classic mojito, you’re going to really love this strawberry mojito. When strawberries are in season, I can’t stop eating them. The ripe berry flavor is perfect for a mojito.

We make a lot of mojitos at home, as you can tell from all the recipes we’ve shared here — mango mojitos, pineapple mojitos… — because the flavors are just so great. You really can’t go wrong with a either a classic or fruity mojito.

One of the main things to keep in mind is that there is a fine balance of flavors here, so even one little tweak to the ratios in the recipe will throw it off and the cocktail won’t taste quite right. We’ve spent a lot of time and sipping perfecting this recipe.

For the rum, I use Bacardi silver, which I find to be great in cocktails and it’s not too expensive. If you want to read more about what rums to use in a mojito, we’ve got a whole post on the subject (I wasn’t kidding when I said we drink a lot of mojitos!).

Ingredients in a Strawberry Mojito

What you’ll need to make this cocktail is:

  • Fresh, ripe strawberry – Ripe strawberries are very important for this recipe. The kind that are packed with flavor and super sweet. If your strawberries are not quite ripe or are lacking in flavor, they won’t make a great mojito.
  • Lime wedges
  • Mint leaves
  • Sugar
  • Rum – I use Bacardi silver, which I find to be great in cocktails and it’s not too expensive.
  • Ice
  • Soda Water

Ripe strawberries are very important for this recipe. The kind that are packed with flavor and super sweet. If your strawberries are not quite ripe or are lacking in flavor, they won’t make a great mojito.

This is actually even better when you allow the strawberries to infuse into the drink for about 5 minutes before drinking it. The flavor really comes out of the fruit that way.

If you want to cut the sugar, you can replace regular sugar with a sugar substitute. The one I use is Xylitol because it has a 1:1 sweetness to sugar. If you use something different, I can’t guarantee the right amount of sweetness, because they all vary so much.

How to Make a Strawberry Mojito

You need a tall glass and a muddler. If you don’t have a muddler, you can use the handle of another utensil that has a thick handle.

I prefer one that’s made in one solid piece so it’s easier to clean, like this one. You don’t want to crush the lime and mint too much when you’re muddling it, or the bitter flavors will come out. Just press enough to release the juice from the lime.

Add the strawberries, mint leaves, lime wedges, and sugar to the glass. Muddle them together well, pressing down on the lime wedges and stirring to dissolve the sugar slightly.

Next, add the ice and the rum and stir everything together. Then top the glass up with soda water or tonic (I personally use slimline tonic). Give it one final stir. Then you can add more lime leaves and another wedge of lime for garnish.

For the glass, I usually use a highball or pint glass for a mojito, but I also like using stemless wine glasses. The cocktail fits nicely in a 10-16 oz glass.

This strawberry mojito recipe has perfectly balanced sweetness and fruit flavor.


  • 1 1/2 ounces strawberries (about 5), chopped or sliced
  • 10 mint leaves
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
  • 2 ounces rum
  • 1 cup ice (small cubes)
  • 2 ounces soda water or tonic


  1. Combine the pineapple, 8 mint leaves, sugar, and lime wedges in a tall glass.
  2. Muddle together, pressing firmly on the lime, but not crushing it.

Letting the cocktail sit for 5 minutes greatly enhances the strawberry flavor (if you can refrain from drinking it that long!)
