If you have never had Bermudan rum, you are missing out. It’s not just for a Dark and Stormy…try it in a Mojito. A Bermudan Strawberry Mojito!

Bermudan Strawberry Mojito
Serves 1

1/4 cup organic sugar
1/2 cup water
8 mint leaves, divided
2 strawberries, chopped
1 ounce Gosling’s Black Seal Bermudan Rum
Seltzer Water

To make simple syrup:
In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, add the sugar and the water. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, just until the sugar has dissolved. Removed the syrup from heat and stir in 4 mint leaves. Set aside to cool.

To make the cocktail:
In a tall glass, muddle together the strawberries, remaining mint and 1 tablespoon of the mint syrup. Stir in rum. Top with ice and finish with seltzer. Stir and serve.
