[2] Choose fresh strawberries that are smaller in size. They’ll fit better into the glass (photos #2 and #3 © Good Eggs).


[3] If you have a choice, choose spearmint instead of peppermint. It works better in cocktails.

 

Here’s what we made for National Rum Day, August 16th (photo #1)—not just delicious, but good-looking, too. Minty, light and refreshing, it’s a great summer drink. The edible flowers are an especially summery touch. Thanks to Rocket Farms for the recipe.

You can turn the cocktail into a mocktail with club soda (especially lime flavor club soda) or Sprite.

If you don’t want to use edible flowers, substitute julienned mint leaves.
