Mixed Berry Mojitos are just the thing to make for summer sipping! Made with just a few ingredients, these drinks come together quickly and are full of bright, fresh flavors. Garnish them with fresh berries and mint for a drink as stunning as it is delicious!
What ingredients are in a Berry Mojito?
Mixed Berry Mojitos require just a handful of ingredients. You’ll need:
- Fresh raspberries and blackberries
- Fresh mint
- Fresh Lime juice
- Granulated Sugar
- Club Soda
How do you make a Mojito?
These mojitos are simple to make! Start by muddling the fresh raspberries & blackberries with the lime juice and mint. You don’t need a muddler to make cocktails at home. Just use the back end of a wooden spoon or something similar to mash the ingredients together. You’ll have a beautiful, deep purple mixture after the berries have been muddled.
What is Muddling?
Muddling is a simple thing that sounds fancy. It means you’re crushing up the fruits with sugar, and in this case mint and lime juice, to create the base of your drink. To muddle properly, push down with the end of a muddler or wooden spoon, and twist. Repeat this until the fruit has released its juices.
After you’ve muddled, add the rum and ice. If you don’t want ice in your drink, you can add the muddled mixture to a shaker along with the remaining ingredients and ice, then shake to chill the drinks. Pour them out of the shaker into your glasses. In this case, I added ice to the glass instead of using my drink shaker.
Top your drinks off with club soda. Taste them at this point, and adjust any of the flavors to your preference. You can add a splash more lime juice, rum, or club soda to fit your own preferences.
How to Garnish a Mojito:
I used little skewers with more fresh blackberries and raspberries to make a quick and beautiful garnish for these drinks. You can add a lime wedge to the rim of your glass as well, or stick on a sprig of fresh mint.
How to Change a Mojito Recipe Yield:
If you want to change the amount of mojitos this recipe yields, just scale it up or down to the desired number of servings. You can cut it in half or double it – and so on – to make the number of drinks you’d like to serve.
