- 3 oz Light Rum
- 1 oz Simple Syrup
- 1/2 oz Lime Juice
- 3 Muddled Strawberries
- 4-5 Mint Leaves
- Club Soda
1. Mix the Cocktail: Combine the mint, strawberries, simple syrup and lime juice into a cocktail shaker. Using a muddler, gently press the ingredients to release the flavors/aroma. Add rum, fill shaker with ice, and shake. Strain into a glass filled with ice. Top with club soda.
2. Strain the Cocktail: Using a hawthorne strainer and fine mesh strainer, strain the cocktail over the fine mesh strainer into a highball glass over ice. (The purpose of double straining is to ensure you remove any ice shards or remaining solids from the cocktail).
3. Garnish the Cocktail: Using a sprig of mint and additional strawberries.
