Strawberry Smart Mojito
1 oz simple syrup
3 fresh strawberries (approximately)
2-3 fresh spearmint sprigs
1 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
3-4 oz soda water
In a chilled highball glass (about 10-11 ounces), muddle the simple syrup, strawberries and mint leaves together with the back of a spoon or muddler. Crush the strawberries and mint leaves well.
Stir in the lime juice and tincture. Fill the glass with ice and top off with soda water. Gently stir. Garnish with mint sprigs or strawberry slices, or for a different look, lime wheel wedge and mint sprigs. Then serve.
