I had a few extra strawberries and as I love mojitos, yesterday I had to try making strawberry mojitos, but what better way to beat the heat than turning them into slushies. If you have a blender like me, we both need to make more frozen drinks! Law?
What did you do on July 4th? We were absolutely bored and made chicken cakes. That doesn't make sense, does it? And we saw our neighbors make fireworks on their driveway. We totally do this every year, but this year, we have some great outdoor furniture to enjoy. I can't wait to share with you what we got from the World Market!
Other things I love now are: blueberries! And guacamole. Seriously, Curtis keeps asking me to make tacos. every. week. He could eat crispy ground beef tacos every other day. And I have to make guacamole with them. I am so excited that California avocados are in season… Florida ones are not enough and California ones are the best. That means Curtis will get more tacos and guacamole … but don't tell him I agree to having the same thing over and over again. Do I like to keep giving him a hard time or perhaps make him think I'm doing him a favor? Haha
And these babies, I really want to eat canned because I love strawberry jam.

Strawberry and mojito slushies recipe
3 cups chopped strawberries (stemless, about 1 pound) about 3 tablespoons plain syrup (1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water, instructions on how to prepare below) 10 fresh mint leaves 1/4 to 1 / 3 cup citrus rum (optional) 3 1/2 to 4 cups ice
Add strawberries, plain syrup, rum, and ice to a blender and pulse until combined and ice crushed. Pour into three 8-ounce glasses and serve with straws and garnish with mint.
How to make simple syrup:
It's really easy, just mix equal parts granulated sugar and water in a medium saucepan or saucepan and bring to a boil. Mix until sugar is dissolved, then remove from heat. Add 5 to 8 mint leaves and allow to cool completely. The stronger the mint flavor you desire in your mojitos, the longer you should infuse the mint leaves. It should only take a few minutes to make a simple syrup! You'll have more so you can keep this in the fridge for a few days.
