This Strawberry Mojito Mocktail is made with fresh strawberries, fresh squeezed lime, and fresh mint! A perfectly refreshing summer mocktail that the whole family can enjoy! It’s actually good anytime of the year, but with strawberry season approaching, this will be especially delicious. Just another use for those fresh-picked strawberries.
Strawberry Mojito Mocktail
We don’t drink hardly any pop at our house. I’m just one of those type A mom’s that don’t think my kids should have pop until they’re like, 30. Okay, realistically, 12ish. Before you go thinking I’m the meanest mom ever, they have had pop before. I just don’t buy it. If they’re at an event or youth group or something, they’re allowed to have something clear without caffeine.
More than that, if I have pop in the house, I’ll drink it. I love pop. Yes, pop, not soda, so you can see I’m from the mid-west. 🙂 Because of the whole pop thing, we need fun drinks sometimes. That’s why I love this strawberry mojito mocktail. All of my family can have it. It’s all natural and low on sugar.
The inspiration for this recipe came from my friend Torie. I was at a party at her house and she was serving these. They were so delicious I wanted to have them again. So after asking her what was in it, I came up with my own version.
