It’s been a HOT week but I have a refreshing summertime drink that will make your weekend.
The Mojito is a traditional Cuban mixed drink. I am changing it up a bit by using some fresh, in-season berries. You can use may berries, but I happen to have a ton of ripe blackberries in the garden today and nothing beats fresh ingredients.
To make this Mojito, you will need:
- 1.5 oz rum
- 2 oz simple sugar
- 2 oz club soda
- 2/3 lime
- 1 tbsp mint pinched or crushed
- 1 tbsp fresh blackberries
In the bottom of a glass, add the berries, lime and mint. You will muddle these with a pestle or a spoon. I included the berries in the picture, but if you want your drink to be clearer, add the berries whole in the end. I also squeezed the juice out of the limes when I put them in the glass.
Add the simple sugar, club soda, rum, some ice and then garnish with lime and mint.
If you wanted a more clear drink, you can leave the berries out until the end. Here is a picture of one we did that way!
