Ladies and gents, meet the blackberry infused mojito. My favorite part of making this cocktail is I have all the ingredients readily available in my cupboard or in my garden when the season is ripe (berries, baby!!). It’s so simple and so fancy looking, this cocktail is bound to charm anyone you know. Let’s do this.
Blackberry Infused Mojito
Makes four cocktails
No. 1: Pre-cut your mint leaves. Rinse, pat dry, and pile. Roll into a pinwheel, and then using a sharp chef’s knife, slice thinly.
No. 2: In a small pitcher, place blackberries and half of the lime wedges and muddle fiercely until perfectly pulped. Add the remaining lime wedges (reserve four to garnish), sliced mint leaves, and powdered sugar. Muddle to perfection again.
No. 3: Add jumbo ice cubes to the pitcher. Pour the white rum over the ice to chill.
No. 4: Distribute evenly in tumblers, about 2/3 full. Top off with club soda, and stir.
No. 5: Garnish tumblers with lime wedges and blackberries. Serve immediately!
