Behind the Bar: Strawberry-Coconut Mojito at The Mission

Mike Bunker's concoctions at The Mission in Old Town are often sweet, often strong, and almost always delivered with a touch of flair.

"I feel like I have a good palate for cocktails," he says. "And I like to drink, so it just fits."

The self-proclaimed mixologist and well-seasoned bartender offered up this Strawberry-Coconut Mojito recipe as the perfect summer cocktail. Bottoms up!

1 ½ ounces of Coconut Rum
A splash of Sweet & Sour
