Just saying the name of this beautiful drink makes me feel refreshed.

Say it… just do it!

See! I told you! You feel refreshed already!

On days like this I figure that not everything has to be baked or fried; hubs is on grill-duty and I’m on drink(ing)-duty. Hallelujah!

Um… the kids… I need to go find those. Don’t worry! They are around here… somewhere…

If you’re still with me, can we just, like, take a moment and have a happy hour together? You and me. And this Strawberry Pom Mojito.

I have to tell ya – Mojitos are by far my favorite cocktail to make. It’s versatile and it’s always SO DAMN GOOD! Two of these drinks and I’m on cloud 9. Three, and I’m in bed. I know… can’t hang! I used to be able to down 7 of ‘em just a few years back, but age happens… Whatev!

Needless to say, I enjoy this drink muchalot! My husband enjoys this drink muchalot to the tenth power! He won’t admit it because it’s a little red and a bit girly, but ’tis the truth. And I know it looks better on me with my summer dress and all, but real men wear red (or pink), so that’s that.

It also makes it that much better when you have a little help from your friends. In this instance, the wonderful people over at OXO sent me this terrific gadget that hulls strawberries!! It’s that little black tool on the left of the photo below. This Strawberry Huller does an incredible job of getting rid of only the part that you don’t need. Press the button to release the leaves and hull, and you’re good to go!

Are we ready to muddle some mint and strawberries, and drown them in a bit (a lot) of rum? Who’s with me? Remember, we’re enjoying happy hour together. Let’s do this!

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!

    The strawberry huller is interesting! I have old fashion strawberry huller that is just like a wide tweezers. But this one is even cooler! I’ll look into this. I use a knife to cut out like this. Considering how much we eat strawberries this sounds like a handy tool. :) Love your mojito!!! Pretty and refreshing drink!

    I can’t even finish ONE drink right now! My 9 month sabbatical from alcohol has left me a total light weight. But I think I could easily find a way to finish one of these!

    I am not a huge cocktail person only because I feel like an idiot when it is time to order them. I did get some fresh strawberries today which makes me want to whip one of these up now!

    I could have sworn that said “Strawberry Porn Mojito” and I could not. get. here. fast enough to check out what strawberry porn could be. Yolk porn I understand.

    I will admit a slight bit of disappointment when I realized my mistake.

    Woohooo!! My kind of fresh strawberry cocktail, Kate! Wicked photography, girl! We can still hang, just not as long, LOL! Happy Memorial Day! xoxo

    How refreshing! Please pass me a glass :)

    And I love the oxo strawberry huller! It’s such a handy tool to have around.

    My strawberry huller isn’t quite so high tech and I don’t have a muddler (must plan another trip to the food equipment supply store … what a hardship) but this drink sounds like it would be quite refreshing in the hot summer months ahead. And it looks pretty too.

    If I make the recipe and drink both glasses myself, does that make me bad? :)

      I’m on my 3rd! And ready for bed… :-D

        Two would definitely be MY limit. Coincidence? I think not. :)

    I miss the days when I could inhale a gazillion cocktails and make it through the night. This mojito looks so enticing – maybe I could handle three and still be coherent. :D

    Gorgeous photos!!

    The thing with mojitos is that I drown them without realizing how many I´ve had! This is a great combination of flavors Kate.

    I so need one of these to relax a little! It’s the day for relaxing. Love the strawberry and mint together.
