Twisted Strawberry Cocktail- The Twistjito

Strawberry season is here and they’re cheap! Strawberries and basil was my first thought, then I saw the rum on the shelf. Things went south from there – to Cuba and how to Twistify a mojito strawberry cocktail. Challenge accepted.


6 strawberries, hulled, plus more for garnish

1/4 c. fresh mint leaves, plus more for garnish

1 lime, juiced

1/2 c. pomegranate juice

3 shots white rum

.5 oz. agave syrup

Ginger Beer

Fill 2 glasses with ice and set aside. Muddle strawberries, mint and lime juice. Add pom juice, rum and agave syrup. mix well and divide between the 2 glasses. Top with Ginger Beer, garnish with remaining strawberries and mint leaves. Cheers!
