Follow my steps and you will get convinced that strawberry mojito is an easy drink to make at home with a restaurant-like aspect and taste.
What is a mojito?
Mojito is an authentic Cuban cocktail made primarily of 5 key ingredients: white rum, lime juice, sugar, soda water, and some mint leaves. This drink is so popular and famous because of a great taste of balanced sweetness and citrusy aroma. A perfect taste to complete a cosy evening.
The ideal proportions for the best tasting mojito are 1 ½ oz of white rum, 1 oz of fresh lime juice and a slice of lime, 2 tsp of sugar or less if you want it less sweet, and some leaves of mint. Easy, simple and tasty! Keep in mind that doing it at home – the measures differs :)!
How much alcohol is in a mojito?
If you LOVE mojito as much as I do then you add as much in order to have an intoxicating and ecstatic drink. If speaking about the authentic mojito then 14gr or 0.6ounces of pure alcohol will be enough. In almost all restaurants or bars this will be the perfect measure for a great mojito drink. However, at home, you can personalize and add more alcohol to obtain a heady and joyful drink.
