Sliced strawberries – It’s best to use fresh ones, but you can substitute thawed strawberries.
Fresh mint leaves
Lime wedges – You will need some for the drink and a few for garnishing the drink.
White sugar – You can also use simple syrup.
White rum – pick your favorite brand! White or clear rum is best for this drink.
Club soda – If you want a little fizz use a lemon lime soda to mix it up, but club soda is the traditional option.
How To Make It:
Place the strawberries and mint in a glass. Use the muddler to crush them.
Squeeze the lim juice into the glass and add the sugar. Muddle the ingredients again. Top the muddled strawberries and mint with ice cube. I like to almost fill the glass with ice.
Pour the rum over the ice and then top the drink off with club soda. Add ice, filling the glass almost to the top. Pour the rum over the ice, and then top off with club soda.
Give the drink a taste and add more sugar if you like it sweeter. Garnish the rim of the glass with a lime wedge and small strawberry.
