Celebrate 4th of July with this refreshing strawberry kiwi mojito!

This summer has been hot, really hot...so cool off and take a dip in the pool, float around and sip on this fresh cocktail. It packs a punch and will sneak up on you so drink responsibly. This drink doesn't taste like there's alcohol in it...

You can also make this non-alcoholic by substituting the alcohol with lemonade, coconut water, juice or just more club soda. Make it your own creation and enjoy your Independence Day!

Yields1 Serving
For the Simple Syrup:
 1 cup granulated sugar
 1 cup water
For the Cocktail:
 2 large strawberries, more for garnish
 ½ kiwi, peeled
 1 lime
 8 mint leaves
 2 fl oz of Your Simple syrup
 3 fl oz white rum
 ½ cup club soda ,soda water, or mineral water ice
Making Simple Syrup . . .
1

Combine 1 cup of granulated sugar and 1 cup of water in a saucepan and bring to boil. Cook until sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally, let cool. 

You will have enough simple syrup to make about 8 drinks.

Place remaining simple syrup not used in a bottle to store in the refrigerator for future use.

Muddle & Mix . . .
2

Place 2 large strawberries, 1/2 of a peeled kiwi, 8 mint leaves and the juice from 1 lime in a tall glass and gently muddle together to release the oils from the mint. I find that using a Pampered Chef Mix N’ Chop works great for muddling.

3

Add 2 ounces of simple syrup, 3 ounces of white rum, 1/2 cup of club soda (or mineral water), a spent lime half, and ice to the glass.

4

Crushed ice is best in this drink but if you don’t have crushed ice then use cubed,

Stir slightly and garnish with a few more strawberries and a lime wedge.

This is a recipe that is best made per glass and not in a pitcher.
