Strawberry and Mint Summer Cocktail Recipe

Taking part in the Rose and Grey styling challenge this summer meant I had an excuse to make my own delicious summery cocktails and eat many mouthwatering strawberries.

As I grow my own herbs, specifically mint, I desperately wanted to use it in the cocktail making process and so I’m sharing a recipe that’s a mixture of the fruit and herbs mentioned above…

What You Will Need:

  • 6 medium/large strawberries

Cocktail Making Method for Two Glasses:

  • Slice your strawberries into quarters and mash using a mortar and pestle whilst adding the sugar
  • Next, add a handful of thinly sliced mint leaves to the strawberries
  • Add two or four shots of rum (depending on alcohol level wanted) and lime juice to taste
  • Then add a drop of sparkling water and ice and finish it off by garnishing with fresh mint and half a strawberry on the glass!

The Cocktail Glasses Set:

Although I’ve made a summery daiquiri drink, the photographed is actually a margarita set from Rose & Grey*. The beauty with the set is that the shape of the glasses is luxuriously versatile so it’ll be perfect for any cocktail, be it a margarita, a mojito or a simple punch for a romantic Friday night-in with the other half. It comes with two lovely glasses and two of each of the following; coasters, straws and cocktail umbrellas. Let’s not forget the cutest flamingo stirrers too!
