Thirsty Thursday--Strawberry Mojito

I know that it's September, 
but summer is far from over in Louisiana.

The strawberries are sweeter than ever, 
and a mojito was calling my name.

This cocktail is just what is needed when the temperature reaches 100 degrees.

Strawberry Mojito

3 strawberries, cut into halves
1 lime wedge
1 teaspoon sugar
8 mint leaves
2 ounces rum
club soda
strawberry half and lime wedge for garnish

In a shaker, combine the strawberries, lime wedge, sugar, and mint leaves.  Muddle until all juices are releases.  Add rum and ice and shake until well mixed.  Pour, unstrained, into a glass filled with ice.  Top with club soda and garnish with a strawberry and lime wedge.
