Blackberry Mojitos

My hubby loves making himself regular mojitos fairly often, so ME making a mojito was very intimidating. But I did it anyway. He tried it, turned to me and said he loved it so much more than any mojito he has ever had. *huge grin*

BLACKBERRY MOJITOS





  • 3/4 cups blackberries
  • 5-6 large mint leaves
  • 4 teaspoons sugar 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cups seltzer water
  • 1/4 cups white rum (or you can use vodka)
  • ice cubes


  • Muddle blackberries, mint leaves, sugar, lemon and lime juice in a tall glass until berries are mostly crushed.
  • Add seltzer, rum and add ice to reach edge of glass. 
  • Garnish with a blackberry, lime slice and/or mint leaves. Stir and serve!
