It seems the strawberry crop in Fort Mill is extra good this year. And people must agree with me because Springs Farms just recently had to close their fields for a few days to the pick your owners because the fields were stripped bare and the plants needed time to replenish the supply. Strawberry season won’t last for that much longer so head out to Springs Farm soon and maybe try a new strawberry recipe or 2.
I recently tried this recipe for strawberry mojitos from iadorefood.com and found it to be a light, tasty, and refreshing drink. The kind of drink that when consumed outside on a nice day makes you want to become a permanent fixture on the porch. I love those kind of drinks.
Strawberry Mojitos (slightly adapted from iadorefood.com)
- 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
- 2 limes- cut in quarters
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 1 liter club soda
- White Rum (add to taste)
- 1 1/2 cups ice
- 8 ripe strawberries
- Use a mortar and pestle to mash together the lime, sugar, and strawberries. (If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, use a bowl and back of a spoon and do the best you can.)
- Add the rum and continue to mash until the lime and strawberry pieces are well incorporated into the rum.
- Pour into a pitcher , add ice, and mix well.
