When it’s summer, I am seriously obsessed with mojitos. Well, lets be honest here, I am always obsessed with mojitos, but it seems like summer is the perfect time for them. I love using the fresh mint from my garden, as well as fresh berries. They are so simple to whip up, and the options are endless on how to flavor them – berries, herbs, fruits…there’s always something to dress up the original mojito. Today I am sharing a really easy recipe for Blackberry Mojitos, and I know you are going to love it!
If you follow my blog, then you probably already know that I love a good cocktail. Mojitos, Moscow Mules, margaritas…you name it, I’m sure I love it and can tell you exactly how to make it. That’s why I love mixing things up; sure, I love regular plain cocktails, but I love getting some fresh berries, fruit, or even herbs to throw into a drink. My all time favorite drink is a Strawberry Basil Margarita – who would have thought that putting basil into a margarita would be genius? Well, me, of course (ha. ha. ha). Anyway, I really really love blackberries during the summer, and I knew they would be the perfect companion for the traditional mojito. I was right, they were delicious paired with the lime and mint, and of course, they helped color the drink this amazing shade of pink. The longer they sat, the deeper the color became; it was gorgeous, and I love consuming pretty foods and drinks!
So the next time you are having a get together, or when you just want something different, try this delicious Blackberry Mojito – you will thank me later!
