It really only takes a few ingredients to make one delicious drink.

- 1/3 cup White Rum 
- 1/4 cup Cream of Coconut 
- 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice 
- Ice

HOW TO MIX IT:

Now you’re going to want to blend all of the ingredients together until you get a slushy texture. Then pour the mixture into your desired glasses. Finally, garnish your glasses with your fresh pineapple and there you have your yummy tropical beverage.

STRAWBERRY MOJITO

In honour of National Mojito day on Sunday July 11th, we wanted to mix up a delicious little something for you all. A Mojito is a simple but super tasty and refreshing cocktail. This drink was created in Cuba and has been crazy popular ever since. In honour of this special day, we’re serving up some mojito magic. Check out our recipe for Strawberry Mojitos.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

- Fresh Strawberries
- White Rum
- 1 Lime
- Sweetener (we used agave syrup)
- Fresh Mint Leaves
- Soda Water
- Ice

HOW TO MIX IT: 

In a tall glass add in 2 strawberries, 1 slice of lime, 2-3 mint leaves and 1 tsp of the sweetener of your choice (again, we used agave) and 1oz of white rum. 
Now you’re going to want to mash up all of the ingredients together. We shook ours up on some ice in a mason jar with the lid on.
Pour your mixture into a pretty glass, add some fresh ice and a soda water of your choice.  Choose a strawberry or mixed berry flavour if you really want that berry flavour. 
Now stir all of the ingredients together, garnish with fresh mint and some strawberries and boom, Strawberry Mojito.
