In this video, I'll show you how to make a Strawberry Mojito PERFECTLY every time for your own palate! That's the key. Everyone has a different palate and requires a different amount of sweetness. The Strawberry Mojito is one of the favourite flavour variations that groups opt for when I do Cocktail Masterclasses.
1 whole Lime
15ml ODK Strawberry Puree
8-10 Mint Leaves
Crushed Ice preferably, but smaller Cubes will work.
To make the Mojito;
Cut the end off the Lime, then cut the Lime into 6 Wedges. Pop all the wedges into a Glass
Add your Strawberry Puree or Syrup. Remember, even if you think you may need more, you can always adjust at the end. Too much sugar to start, and you may have ruined the Cocktail. Adding more Lime juice simply won't work!
Muddle the Limes to get all the juice and the lovely flavours out of the Lime skins.
Pick off 8-10 Mint leaves and "Spank" them in the palm of your hand, then add them to your Glass.
Add the Rum
Add Soda water - but don't over-dilute. I always say "Half fill a Hiball".
Add Crushed Ice
Churn the Drink - bring all the Limes and the Mint to the top. Remember the Puree is heavy so will be at the bottom of the glass.
Top with More Crushed Ice
Garnish with a fresh Sprig of Mint, which sits right beside a straw, so when you have a sop, it's the Mint aroma that you get first.
