Strawberry-Rhubarb Mojito

I made a nice, big batch of Strawberry-Rhubarb Syrup recently. My newest garden cocktail using this scrumptious concoction is a Strawberry-Rhubarb Mojito. I even used genuine mojito mint from the Drunken Botanist Plant  Collection. If you like strawberries and rhubarb together, or mojitos, or all of the above, give this Strawberry-Rhubarb Mojito recipe a whirl.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Mojito

  • 2 ounces rum
  • 2 ounces Strawberry-Rhubarb Syrup
  • 1/2+ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice (feel free to add more for more tartness)
  • 5 or 6 mint leaves for muddling, and a sprig for a garnish

Muddle the mint leaves in the bottom of your serving glass. Add the rum, Strawberry-Rhubarb Syrup, and lime juice. Mix, add ice cubes, and garnish with a sprig of mint.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Syrup

  • 3 cups diced rhubarb
  • 3 cups strawberries, hulled and cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons chopped ginger root
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 2 1/2 cups organic cane sugar
  • 1/4+ teaspoon grated nutmeg

Put everything in a large pot, and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. Keep at a gentle simmer for 20 – 30 minutes. Let cool. Strain through a sieve into a clean bottle. Save the fruit in your strainer to enjoy as is, mixed with yogurt, or added to a future recipe. Store syrup and cooked fruit in your fridge.

    I love strawberries. I love rhubarb. I love mojitos. I have to make this. Question: how long would you say the syrup would keep in the fridge?

    I’m happy to hear you are going to try this tasty combo. The Strawberry Rhubarb Syrup should be fine in your fridge for at least two weeks. Probably even up to four weeks. That is, if it lasts that long!
