Homemade Strawberry Mojito

Since the snow is still coming down and the sun is still in hiding over here, I figured if I can't actually see summer, I might as well drink it.  So I went out to my local grocery store, got some fruit, and came home and whipped up this beauty.  I'm always one to be a bit disappointed with my attempt at replicating things at home, but not gonna lie, this was by far the best thing I've ever tasted, so obviously I must share.  It was quick, easy, and better than any mojito I've ordered from a bar.
