Mojitos have always been one of my favorite drinks. A classic mojito recipe is always so refreshing, especially on hot summer days. Think of this as the blackberry version. The addition of blackberries to this this easy summer cocktail gives the traditional mojito a lovely fruity twist.
The sweet and tart flavor or the juicy ripe blackberries with the cool aroma of the fresh mint is such a delightful experience.
It's crisp and sweet, and so easy to make. I love having friends over and making a batch of these, they're always such a hit.
Think of this recipe as a traditional mojito with a fruity spin. A mojito consists of white rum, mint leaves, lime juice, simple syrup, and club soda.
For this blackberry mojito recipe, you'll need a few of those ingredients, but I used honey instead of simple syrup for extra flavor!
For the lime juice, I simply squeezed a few lime wedges to get that fresh lime juice taste. I've found that using fresh ingredients is the utmost refreshing, especially during the summer months!
If you don't have a cocktail shaker, you can use a mason jar or any cup with a lid. Also, if you don't have a muddler, you can use the bottom of a wooden spoon to mash the ingredients together to make this delicious drink.
The measurements for this simple cocktail are provided in ounces, hence as to why I recommend using a jigger. If you don't have a jigger, you can use a tablespoon.
As a rule of thumb, 1 tablespoon = ½ ounce. So 2 ounces of white rum equals 4 tablespoons. You can apply this to all of the ingredients.
This easy recipe comes together in about 5 minutes and is the perfect cocktail to make if you're entertaining.
This recipe is for a single serving, however, you can make a large batch of this blackberry cocktail by multiplying the ingredients and adding everything to a large pitcher.
You may want to use blackberry syrup or blackberry jam to keep the strong blackberry flavor. Also, to get the true mint taste without needed a large batch of fresh mint leaves, you can use mint simple syrup in place or in addition to the mint.
Of note, do not add club soda or ice until you're ready to serve. Also, be sure when making a large batch that you stir the mixture well so that everything is mixed properly! Mixing the ingredients is what makes this a delicious cocktail!
Light Rum is best for mojitos but you can also use dark rums for darker/oaky flavors.
For this blackberry drink, I garnished with fresh mint and blackberries on a cocktail pick. It makes this classic cocktail so pretty!
Check out these fun cocktails and bookmark them to make for the holidays, girl's night, date night, or just a hot summer day!
