What are your plans for this long holiday weekend?
Laying by the pool? Grilling out with family? Relaxing with friends?
My sisters and I will be enjoying the beautiful day with one of these in hand.
This is one of my new favorite summer drinks because (a) it's super refreshing, (b) I can use up the gazillion mint leaves from my garden, and (c) it's EASY!
You seriously can't mess this up!
1. Pour 2 ounces of white rum in a glass (a plus to using mason jars because they have measurements written on the the side!) Put 3 strawberries and 6 mint leaves. (Add or subtract ingredients to your liking!)
2. Use a muddler or the back of a spoon to mash the strawberries and mint leaves.
3. Fill the remainder of the glass with 7-up, and add 2 or 3 squirts (I always find that word hilarious for some reason. Haha! I literally am smiling as I type.) of lime juice.
4. Stir and enjoy!
It's that simple!
I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend with family and friends!
Happy Memorial Day!
