Ingredients

  • 500g Strawberries
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • Juice of one big lime
  • 1 sliced lime
  • 2 tbsps grenadine
  • 1 bottle sprite/ 7up (chilled)

Method 

  1. Recite Bismillah
  2. Wash & slice the strawberries.
  3. In a bowl mix the strawberries & sugar. Allow to sit for 1 hour. (This step allows the natural juices to release giving the mojito a  stronger strawberry flavour)
  4. In a blender, Blend the strawberries, lemon juice, mint leaves & grenadine till smooth.
  5. Fill the glasses or jug with the strawberry puree. Then add the lime slices, crushed ice & sprite / 7up. If you are filling glasses you will only need to fill about 1/4 of your glasses with puree.
  6. Garnish & enjoy!
