It might still be winter, but all I can think about is summer! Spindrift’s new Strawberry Lemonade is so delicious and it’s bringing the summer in! To celebrate this new flavor, I’m making a Strawberry Lemonade Mojito. It’s refreshing, delicious, and so fun to make!
Spindrift has three new flavors of lemonade: Strawberry, Pink, and Lime. We are making cocktails with all three of them, and you can check out our Teri Collins with Spindrift Pink Lemonade. Plus, keep an eye out for a Spindrift Margarita coming soon! I’m loving these new flavors, especially during this Chicago winter. They are so delicious, and they are unsweetened but packed with so much real fruit that you don’t miss the sugar.
A traditional mojito has muddled mint and sugar, but in our Strawberry Lemonade Mojito, we are using strawberries as the sweetener instead of sugar. It creates a lovely fruity taste without being too sweet, which I absolutely love. We made a Strawberry Lemonade last summer with Spindrift, but I have to say I’m pretty excited about this new spin as a mojito!
For a mojito, make sure you are using light rum. Dark rum is a much bolder flavor because of the aging process, and it can overtake a cocktail quickly. Light Rum isn’t aged as long, and it has the perfect flavor for using in cocktails like our Strawberry Lemonade Mojito!
This drink is perfect if you’re looking for something easy that feels a little fancy. The mint and strawberry combine to create a delicious cocktail that you’ll love.

This Strawberry Lemonade Mojito is transporting me to summer! With all fresh ingredients, it’s delicious and refreshing.
4–5 sprigs mint, more for garnish
3-4 strawberries sliced, more for garnish
2 ounces light rum (I used Bacardi)
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
5 ounces Spindrift Strawberry Lemonade, adjust to taste
In a tall glass, combine the sprigs of mint and sliced strawberries. Using a muddler or a wooden spoon, muddle the mint and strawberries.
Add ice, rum, lime juice, and Spindrift Strawberry Lemonade and stir.
Add a whole strawberry and another sprig of mint on top for garnish. Enjoy!
If your strawberries are not sweet, you can add a sprinkle of sugar before muddling to add a bit more sweetness. If the strawberries are lovely and sweet, they will be perfect on their own for this drink.
