  • Choosing the berries – use ripe and sweet strawberries for the best flavor. They should be fragrant and free of any discoloration.
  • Be gentle – when muddling mint leaves, you want to be gentle to avoid them turning into a paste. All you need is a light press and twist.
  • Adjusting for sweetness – strawberries can vary in their sweetness level. Give them a taste before adding sweetener and adjust the amount accordingly.
  • Use the right ice – using small ice cubes or crushed ice will chill the drink quicker.
  • Experiment with garnishes – You can have fun with the garnishes. Try using mixed berries, lemon, limes, mint leaves or getting creative with the shapes of your strawberries to mix it up.
