Step 1: Wash the strawberries
Remove stems and wash the strawberries thoroughly first.

Add mint leaves for aroma and flavor and stir to combine.

Then you can thaw and add the rest of the ingredients on the day you want to prepare this easy drink.
A mocktail is the nonalcoholic version of a rum cocktail.
While fresh strawberries are always the best, you can use frozen strawberries if you don’t have fresh fruit. Just make sure you thaw them before using them.
If you don’t want to blend the fruits and get a smooth mixture, you can use the end of a wooden spoon to muddle the fresh fruit and leaves in a pitcher.
