Strawberry Mojito

Every Thursday we celebrate Thirsty Thursday at Intercross! We hope you enjoy our employee-chosen recipes. Each employee will be sharing their creativity with you, by sharing their drink of choice. This week features Strawberry Mojitos from our Managing Partner, Diana Maples:

“It’s time for Happy Hour with Strawberry Mojitos. Light and refreshing on a hot summer day. (Don’t worry — Hadron and the other office dogs were not allowed a lick.) And who knows? There may be a future Happy Hour at Intercross that you can join in on. Stay tuned, and in the meantime, from our team to yours — Cheers!”

Strawberry Mojitos for a Crowd

  • white sugar, for rimming
  • 4 large limes, quartered
  • bunch mint leaves
  • 14 strawberries, quartered
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups white rum
  • 4 cups club soda
  • 16 cups ice cubes
  1. Pour 1/4 to 1/2 inch of sugar onto a small, shallow plate. Run one of the lime quarters around the rim of each cocktail glass, then dip the glasses into the sugar to rim; set aside.
  2. Squeeze all of the lime quarters into a sturdy glass pitcher. Toss the juiced limes into the pitcher along with the mint, strawberries, and 1 cup of sugar. Crush the fruits together with a muddler or potato masher to release the juices from the strawberries and the oil from the mint leaves. Stir in the rum and club soda until the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Pour into the sugared glasses over ice cubes to serve.
