This Strawberry & Honeydew Mojito is the perfect cocktail for entertaining, you can easily prep a pitcher {or 2} before your guests arrive and leave cooling in the fridge.

If I had to choose a favorite summer cocktail it would be the mojito. It’s simple to make and versatile; by just switching up a few ingredients you have a completely different flavor. Hon

Make these ahead of time by the pitcher the longer it sits the better it tastes!

    2. Using a muddler or wooden spoon mash the strawberries and mint leaves in the bottom of your pitcher, add the liquefied honeydew. Add in the lime juice and rum and 1/4 cup of simple syrup {can add more if you want it sweeter taste test it first}.
