Strawberry Mojito Ingredients

The key to the best strawberry mojitos is using the freshest ingredients. Let’s talk about the ingredients you’ll need to bring this sweet mojito recipe to life.

  • White Rum: It’s essential to use white rum for mojitos and not dark spiced rum, as dark rum would be overpowering when paired with mint and lime’s light and delicate flavors. Make sure to use a quality white rum that you enjoy the taste of.
  • Fresh Strawberries: If strawberries are in season, definitely opt for organic; they’re the freshest and juiciest ones that you can find. If they’re not in season or you simply can’t find any, you can use frozen strawberries in a pinch—just make sure to thaw them first.
  • Lime Juice: Nothing compares to fresh lime juice in a mojito, so I highly recommend sticking to fresh limes. However, you can use store-bought lime juice if you don’t have another option. 
  • Mint Leaves: This is the star of any mojito recipe, so don’t leave it out! Fresh mint leaves are crucial to achieving the signature minty flavor of this cocktail. 
  • Granulated Sugar: It’s not a mojito without the sugar, so I use the best sugar on the market, Imperial Sugar. Imperial Sugar’s products include extra-fine granulated sugar, light and dark brown sugar, free-flowing sugar, powdered sugar, sugar shakers, white and brown sugar cubes, and Steviacane® (Stevia + sugar blend). Imperial Sugar products are 100% pure cane sugar, non-GMO, and provide consistently delicious results.
