Raspberry Mojito

Raspberry mojito

It’s tailgating season and it seems like everyone is looking for fun appetizer and mixed drink recipes. Let’s face it, there is only so much beer I can handle watching football. So, today, we made a very simple and fresh raspberry mojito to change things up a bit. All you need is some fresh raspberries, lime, tonic, mint, and your choice of rum.

Ingredients:

Raspberry Puree

  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • pinch of salt

Raspberry Mojito

  • raspberry puree
  • lime
  • mint
  • rum
  • tonic

Directions:

Start by picking some of your fresh raspberries from your garden, or get some from you local store. You will need to make a puree. Combine the 1/2 cup raspberries, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 1/2 water, with a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil until it thickens. You can run it through a food mill or strain to get rid of the seeds if you like.

In a tumbler, add a slice of lime and mint. Muddle to release the flavor.
