Strawberry-Lemon Mojitos

Death & Co. ? Manhattan

Strawberries sweeten these mojitos from Joaquin Simo. "This is a great drink when you're in the mood for something fruity," says Simo. Use a molasses-based rum (like white Brugal) for a smoother drink, or a sugarcane-based rum (such as white Barbancourt) for a drier cocktail.
