This is a great summer drink! We serve them at the bar I work at, but I make them at home a lot too. In the summer, I normally have everything on hand to make them.
~Muddle basil, strawberry, splash of lime juice, and simple syrup
~Fill a tall glass with ice, pour in rum, pour in basil/strawberry mixture, then top with ginger ale.
(You won’t need the whole can of ginger ale for 1 drink.)
~Garnish with a lime wedge and a strawberry, if you want.
Note: To make simple syrup just mix 1 part sugar and 1 part water in a pan on the stove until the sugar is dissolved. The simple syrup is optional, but I like my mojitos sweeter, so I use it.
Also, you can make the muddled basil/strawberry mixture and freeze it in little containers if you need to make a bunch for a party or something! Enjoy!
