Although pumpkin spice season is upon us, there is still time to enjoy the fruity drinks of the summer. This week’s drink of the week is a sweet strawberry pineapple mojito.

Ingredients include:

  • Four limes cut into wedges
  • Eight strawberries
  • One bunch of mint with stems removed
  • Six ounces of pineapple juice
  • Six ounces of rum
  • Two cups of club soda

For each drink, muddle three lime wedges, two strawberries, one tablespoon of mint leaves and one tablespoon of sugar in a cocktail shaker until crushed. Stir in pineapple juice, rum and club soda. Pour the drink over ice and garnish with remaining lime wedges and strawberries as you wish. For our underage readers, substitute rum for extra pineapple juice for a non-alcoholic fruit drink.
