I had this drink at a popular chain restaurant and decided to try it at home. I have served it at a couple different gatherings now and it has always been given rave reviews. It’s the perfect drink for a hot summer day!

Recipe Ingredients

  • white sugar, for rimming
  • 2 large limes, quartered
  • ½ bunch mint leaves
  • 7 strawberries, quartered
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup white rum
  • 2 cups club soda
  • 8 cups ice cubes

Cooking Directions

  1. 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. 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 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. Pour into the sugared glasses over ice cubes to serve.

  1. Excellent recipe...but I kinda took a left turn with the directions though. :) I made a simple syrup out of 1/2 cup sugar, 1 1/2 cups lemon juice and 2 cups mashed strawberries - brought that to a boil, simmered for 3 minutes, removed from heat and strained through a cheesecloth and let cool. NOW...add - Read more ...
  2. Very delicious, and very much appreciated by friends at our backyard BBQ. I didn't measure out everything perfectly, but used this recipe as a guide for the ratios I should pour. I put the ingredients directly into a glass pitcher. I ripped apart the mint leaves so they were big enough that people wouldn't swallow, - Read more ...
  3. This is a good recipe, but it definitely needs less sugar. I used half of sugar the recipe calls for, and it was enough. Thanks, very good cocktail.
  4. This was awesome! I made these for a party and we all loved this. Based upon previous reviewers' comments, I only used 1/2 cup of sugar and it was perfect, not too sweet and just enough to allow the fruit and mint to macerate nicely to flavor the drink.
  5. Mmmm muy perfecto! I put the strawberries through my juicer and used a bit less sugar than called for. Thanks Jolene!:)
  6. Delicious! I substituted lemon-lime soda for the club soda, and left out the sugar, and it turned out beautifully.
  7. Good ingredients just WAY too much sugar as written. If I make it again I will cut the sugar in half. Also I think it would be good to put the strawberries in a food processor so they aren't so chunky when drinking.
  8. This was very light and refreshing! especially for a summer day! we like cocktails but have been looking for a recipe that doesn't have too many calories or sugar. I substituted sugar for splenda and only put about 3 or 4 packets into the mixture and it still came out delicious!
  9. Delicious! I made this in the blender because I was pressed on time. It turned out fine but I do plan on making it again correctly.
