Strawberry Mojito Cocktail

strawberry mojito

I wanted a strawberry mojito cocktail. I asked for this cocktail when I picked strawberries with my husband. I really love picking strawberries, there is nothing nicer than to pick them from the field straight into your mouth. I am married to a Colombian, so strawberry picking was something he had never done. I requested we go and even though we live in a big city in Germany, the next strawberry field was surprisingly close. Nothing comes close to plicking fruits and enjoying them right there and then.

Well, and then we had tons of strawberries. I have already some strawberry recipes on this blog. For example this strawberry rhubarb waffle cake, strawberry sponge roll, or this no bake strawberry cake, this strawberry chocolate cake, or these fluffy strawberry pancakes for breakfast. But I wanted something else. I wanted to celebrate. Celebrate that I am fully recovered after my horrible bike accident. For that reason we had a giant cookie monster cake a few days ago. But I wanted to celebrate with a drink. I love mojitos and I love strawberry mojitos. So I asked my husband to make me a strawberry mojito. One with fresh strawberries.
