If you’re looking for a drink that contains juicy ripe fruit like a daiquiri, but with less brain freeze and more mint, the strawberry mojito, a sexy spin off of the original Cuban mojito, is the signature drink for you. The strawberry mojito is a girl’s best friend and the perfect companion for ladies night, where you can rant to your friends about that cheapskate that made you pay for your own drinks on a first date. Unlike that flake, the strawberry mojito can satisfy your cravings any time of the night. After one sip, you won’t be saying “not tonight” ever again, at least to this cocktail.
