Well, it’s September and I’m finally getting back to posting stuff. Living in a city where we only get a few months of warmth each year it seems as though we try to pack it all into a shortened time frame. There were weddings and parties, happy hours and out of town trips, coupled with trying to take our boat out any chance we could get. On top of all that, we bought another house, celebrated 5 years of marriage & I turned 30! All that equals zero time left for me to cook, let alone photograph my meals when I do, but here’s some iPhone pics to catch you up.
One thing that I was able to make and perfect this summer was this delicious pitcher of Strawberry Mojitos! If you want to make it ahead, combine all ingredients except for the mint and strawberries until ready to serve. Enjoy!
Strawberry Mojito Pitchers
- juice of 4 limes
- juice of 4 lemons
- 1 bottle Bacardi Rum (750 ml)
- 3/4 cup simple syrup (recipe below)
- 1 bottle club soda (1L), plus more if desired
- splash of orange juice or lemonade
- several handfuls of fresh mint
- fresh strawberries, quartered
To make the simple syrup, combine 1 cup water and 1 cup white sugar in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool. Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher, stir and serve!
