Strawberry Vodka Mojito-sweet strawberries muddled with lime, mint, grenadine, and vodka, then topped with soda water. This cocktail is easy to put together and is the delightfully refreshing. Just perfect for the hot weather.
We’ve had like one week of summer in the UK and now it’s been mostly rain. That won’t stop me from enjoying summer like I want to.
Summer for me is all about lounging in the garden with some good food and a tall glass of something sweet. It could be with a white wine ginger sangria or even a frozen strawberry basil daiquiri. Lately I’ve had this strawberry vodka mojito on my mind. I have a fondness for mojitos and have been making many variations of this cocktail.
So let's make this Strawberry Vodka Mojito
First muddle strawberries, lime and mint together in a highball glass. Add in lime juice, vodka and grenadine, then give it a stir. Top with soda water and garnish with a mint sprig. And enjoy!
Variations of this Vodka Mojito
Make this with different berries. You can use blueberries, raspberries or blackberries. Or combine all the berries for a mixed berry mojito.
Use a simple syrup instead of grenadine. A simple syrup is made with equal amounts of sugar and water . To make this add water and sugar to a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved. Leave to cool before using. The syrup can be stored in the fridge for up 30 days.
Make a Skinny Mojito by reducing the calories. Omit the grenadine and use a sweetener like stevia or top off with sprite zero.
