Mixology Monday

This week we’re giving the classic mojito a Springtime twist! Mixology Monday XXXVIII is being hosted over at the Wild Drink Blog, and the theme is “Superior Twists.” The idea is add a twist to a classic cocktail that sends it over the top of cocktail goodness.

Strawberries and basil make a great combination—each has its own brand of sweetness. The two complimentary flavors are an ideal match for the light and refreshing mojito. What you end up with is a drink that’s perfect for sipping on the porch!


  • 3 fresh strawberries
  • 3–5 fresh basil leaves
  • 2 oz simple syrup
  • 2 oz white rum
  • crushed ice
  • club soda


Slice the strawberries and place at the bottom of a tall glass along with the basil leaves. Pour in the simple syrup and muddle the mixture. Stir in the rum and top with crushed ice. Top off with club soda and garnish with strawberry slices.
