2 oz. Light rum
½ oz. Freshly squeezed lime juice
1 oz. Simple syrup
3 to 4 pcs. Large strawberries, sliced
1 cup Ice
Fresh whole or sliced strawberry, for garnish
Combine the rum, simple syrup, strawberries, and lime juice in a blender. Add ice.
Set the blender at high speed and blend until you achieve a smooth consistency.
Serve into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with fresh strawberry slices.
If you don’t have a blender, you can also use a cocktail shaker to mix all ingredients. You may not be able to achieve a perfectly smooth consistency using this method, but having small chunks of fresh strawberries on your drink adds a whole new level of texture and flavor to it.
