Time to ignore the rubbish British weather and force summer to happen with a very summery cocktail. And what is more summery than strawberries. Which is why I’m combining it with lemons for a good dose of strawberry-lemon mojito

You will need:

Ingredients:

  • 8 lemon wedges

How to make it:

Just like last week, this is a sharing cocktail, and this recipe makes four. So in your cocktail shaker, muddle the lemon wedges with the strawberries and mint leaves (I would use the back of a spoon to do this). Add ice and the rum, lemon juice and simple syrup. Shake well, then strain into your glasses and top up with ice. Garnish with the strawberry halves and mint sprigs.
