What says “Summer” more than a tall, cold Blackberry mojito with fresh mint and juicy blackberries? NOTHING that’s what. There’s something about this fresh drink that makes me feel like I’m on a permanent vacation.
I love mojitos. I love fresh mint and fresh berries. I guess the Amish in me grew up drinking fresh garden tea and this adult drink has me reminiscing about those long-ago memories and yearning that summer nights have no end. I have always been the type of person that needs MORE. More berries. More mint. That did not change when my husband and I were trying to make this delicious mojito.
Blackberry Mojito Recipe
- 6 blackberries
- 7-9 mint leaves
- 1 oz. simple syrup
- 1/2 oz. lime juice
- Ice, crushed
- 2 oz. white rum

~Makes 1 Mojito~

P.S. The blackberries can make a mess and stain, so watch out for that. Otherwise, enjoy this fresh, fruity drink.
