Mixed Berry Mojito made with fresh blackberries, strawberries, mint, lime and rum. Super refreshing and perfect for summer. Takes less than 5 minutes to make!
What better way to start off the week than with a cocktail.
Do you guys like mojitos as much as I do? They are perfectly tart, not too sweet and always refreshing. I’ve shared my Classic Mojito recipe with you. As well as a Blood Orange Mojito and Cranberry Pomegranate Mojito.
This time I made you a berry mojito loaded with fresh berries, lime juice, mint and rum.
This cocktail is pretty simple. All you need is 5 minutes and 6 ingredients. What’s not to love?
To make this berry mojito start by muddling the berries, mint and simple syrup together in a glass. Top with lime juice and rum. Stir to combine. Top with ice and sparkling water. If the seeds from the blackberries bother you simply strain through a sieve before serving.
I used a combination of fresh blackberries and strawberries in this cocktail. The sweet berries go great with the tart lime juice.
Substitute your favorite fresh berries. Cherries, blueberries and raspberries would all be wonderful.
I like to use simple syrup in my drinks versus regular sugar. It makes the drink sweet throughout and you don’t have to worry about the sugar ending up in the bottom of your glass. I always have some simple syrup in the fridge. I typically make 1 cup at a time (equal parts sugar + water). It can last in the fridge for up to a month.
Make a big pitcher of these Mojitos and serve at your next barbecue or get together!
