Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • The recipe calls for plain sparkling water, but feel free to get creative. I have tried lime, cucumber, berry, and lemon and they are all delicious.

  • This recipe is made with a strawberry simple syrup. Feel free to use a plain simple syrup or a lime simple syrup if you prefer. 
  • You can buy simple syrup from the store if you don’t want to make your own to save time. 
  • If you want to make a large batch to serve at a gathering you can mix the rum, strawberry simple syrup, and lime juice in a pitcher. When you get ready to pour individual drinks, then add in the sparkling water. 
  • If you don’t have a muddler you can use a spoon, the bottom of a wooden spoon, a mortar and pestle, or a wooden skewer.
