Easy Strawberry Mojito Recipe!

People are non-stop posting pictures of festival of colors Fagu Purnima (Holi) on facebook. Not only super jealous, I am super sad because after Tihar, this used to be my favorite festival with friends and family. After moving to States, its been almost five years, I haven't celebrated Fagu Purnima. Ahh!! the downside of living abroad :( To create the vibe of this festival, I made an alcohol related drink called "Mojito." On Fagu Purnima with colors people back home also drink all sorts of hard drinks and go crazy :D I am not fond of hard drinks that much but I like mixed ones. So, here you go everyone, not crazy but get ready for getting tipsy :)
Happy Fagu Purnima (Holi) everyone :x
