GO DRINK THIS
The drink: Strawberry Mojito (mocktail or cocktail)
The price: $5 or $11
The story: The allure of fresh muddled strawberries and fragrant mint leaves is hard to resist, especially when the combo is served in the form of a mojito. The base of this summer-friendly cocktail though— white rum— is pretty syrupy by nature (made with molasses). You can always ask the bartender to eliminate it for a more invigorating and less cloying experience. We’re particularly fond of the mocktail Ervin Machado serves at Fort Lauderdale’s newest haunt Louie Bossi’s on Las Olas. Grab one and head out to the restaurant’s exceedingly charming garden for a guilt-free moment.
Where to find it: Louie Bossi’s Ristorante Bar Pizzeria, 1032 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale.
