This is a delicious mojito cocktail with a "blackberry" twist - a refreshing summer drink recipe.
½ pint blackberries
½ cup white rum
Freshly squeezed juice from 1 large lime
Freshly grated zest from 1 lime
4 sprigs mint leaves
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup chilled club soda plus more as needed
Ice cubes for serving
Mint sprigs to garnish (optional)
Blackberries to garnish (optional)
Blend blackberries in a blender until smooth. Strain through a sieve into a small bowl and discard solids.
Muddle the 4 mint sprigs in a mixing glass with the lime juice, zest, and sugar.
Mix in the blackberry mixture.
Pour rum and stir until sugar dissolves. Stir in club soda.
Pour into serving glasses and top with ice. Garnish with mint sprigs and blackberries, if desired.
