How to make a Blackberry Mojito

A Blackberry Mojito is refreshing during any season, for any occasion, or enjoyed any day of the week.
First of all, a traditional mojito is a cocktail that consists of white rum, simple syrup, lime juice, club soda, and mint. The white rum compliments the combination of sweetness, citrus, and mint flavors. A mojito usually has a relatively low alcohol content, however, you can modify the amount to suit your individual taste.
  • 5 – 6 fresh blackberries 
  • 4 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 1/2 ounces simple syrup or blackberry syrup
  • 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup club soda, chilled
  • 1 to 1 1/2 ounces white rum 
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • Garnish with sprigs of mint and fresh whole blackberries 

  1. Place blackberries, mint leaves, simple or blackberry syrup and lime juice into a small bowl. Gently mash the mixture with a muddler. Do not shred the mint leaves, rather simply bruise them to release the essential oils. Stir in club soda and rum. Strain to remove the blackberry seeds and remnants of the mint leaves. Pour into chilled stemware.  Add ice and garnish with fresh sprigs of mint and several fresh whole blackberries. Serve.
