Beacon Hill Bistro: Strawberry Rhubarb Mojito

Sipping the standard mint-infused mojito is kinda summer 2008. This year, spend those warm summer nights enjoying the Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro’s latest creation, the Strawberry Rhubarb Mojito.

Leave it up to the Bistro to take a classic cocktail such as the mojito and mix it with a complex, yet delicious, strawberry rhubarb infusion made with fresh strawberries, rhubarb, and light rum. Mojito connoisseurs need not worry; the bold flavors of lime juice, sugar, and mint still enhance this refreshing $11 cocktail.


Strawberry/Rhubarb Infusion:
15-20 strawberries cut into halves
1 large stalk rhubarb chopped into ½ inch pieces
1 bottle 750 ml light Rum

3 oz infused Rum
¾ oz fresh lime juice
1 strawberry from tank
Pinch of sugar
1 sprig mint
Soda water

Muddle strawberry with sugar and mint leaves
