Summer is nearly here, and strawberries are in high season! Our friends at Great Country Farms brought us a bunch of freshly picked strawberries today, and asked us to make them a cocktail! So I came up with the Strawberry Mosbito, a fun play on the mojito, except with our own Virginia moonshine.
1½ oz Mosby's Spirit
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz simple syrup
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mint, three strawberries and lime juice until well mixed and mashed together. Add ice and the Mosby's Spirit to the shaker, and shake vigorously. Strain the contents into a tall glass of ice, top with sparkling water and garnish with mint, strawberries, and a lime wheel.
