Easy Strawberry Mojito

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!
