Blackberry Mojito

IMG_5243

My husband makes the most delicious Mojitos and we have fun creating different combinations together. Every year I always make sure to plant a nice big pot of mojito mint so we can enjoy fresh mojitos all summer long. Two years ago I posted his delicious Raspberry Mojito, and this year he has a new creation with blackberries. Not only is this delicious but the colour is absolutely beautiful. Cheers!

Ingredients:

  • 6 mints leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 6 blackberries, plus 1 for garnish
  • 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 shot of Rose’s Lime Cordial
  • 4 ice cubes
  • 1 shot of vodka
  • Club soda (roughly 1/2 can)
  • lime wedge

Directions:

  1. Place mint, blackberries, sugar, and lime cordial in a rocks glass (Old Fashioned Glass/ “short tumbler”).
  2. Muddle ingredients with a muddler (if you have one) or a utensil you have around that looks like a muddler!
  3. Add the 4 ice cubes to the glass, and pour in the shot of vodka.
  4. Top up the glass with club soda.
  5. Garnish with one more blackberry, a wedge of lime and a short straw.
