Tips and Tricks

Every recipe has its own tips and tricks that make it better than any other recipe. That’s why today we’ve gathered for you every trick you need to know in order to make this cocktail the best strawberry mojito you’ve ever tasted! So, forget the jello shots and let’s see how to make this recipe even better.

Use homemade strawberry jam if you can

Chilled Glass

This cocktail, like many others, is best served cold. If you are planning to enjoy this cocktail somewhere really warm, we recommend you chill the glass beforehand. This will ensure the cocktail stays colder for longer, so you can cool down even in the warmest of weather.

Use White Rum

For this cocktail to be the best it can, using white, or also known as silver rum, is essential. Since there are no other types of alcohol in the strawberry mojito, it’s important to choose a rum of high-quality that you like the taste of. Some of the most popular brands of white rum for mojito are the Bacardi Silver, Havana Club Blanco and the Cruzan Aged White Rum. However, if you don’t like rum at all, you can substitute it with gin or vodka.

Sugar Rim

If you want to add a little spice to the cocktail, why not add a nice, sweet sugar rim to the glass? While this won’t really add anything to the cocktail itself, it does add to the experience and makes for an even prettier presentation. Plus, it adds a bit of sweetness to your life.


The great thing about this cocktail is that’s its super versatile. You can some coconut milk into the mojito in order to achieve a pleasant, cream mojito. Or if you don’t have mint leaves, you can also use basil. You can add in other types of berries as well to make a double or even triple berry mojito. If you like spicy foods, garnish the cocktail with some jalapeño. Can’t drink? Make it into a mocktail by adding in more sparkling water and no rum. You can even add flavored soda. The possibilities are endless, all you need to do is fire up your imagination.
