Refreshing Strawberry Mojito

As you might remember I shared on Wednesday our adventure to a local berry farm to pick berries (if you missed it, you can find it here). Well it appears that our eyes were bigger than our stomachs and we came home with more berries than we could possibly handle. I froze about half of the berries and we still had too many.  We had homemade waffles topped with fresh berries, we baked a cake with fresh raspberry filling, to say the least we spent a lot of time in the kitchen the last week! Not only that the weather has been amazing, once the kids were in bed the weather had cooled down and it was reasonable to sit outside and enjoy a beverage. I thought it would be fun to incorporate the fresh berries we had into a cocktail. So today I’m sharing my quick and most definitely refreshing Strawberry Mojito with you.
