Blackberry Mojito

This cocktail is my faaaaaaaavorite. It is beautiful, refreshing, and loaded with delicious flavor. Seriously, you are going to be blown away at how amazing this flavor trio truly is.

The lime and blackberries add a tart start, the syrup sweetens things up, and the mint gives you that final fresh taste! I have made these over and over and love them a little more each and every time.

If you chose to make the alcohol free version you even get the added bonus of coconut! Yes, it is optional, but if you have the syrup around you’ll want to stir it in.

  • Ice
  • Rum
  • Club soda

The list of ingredients for a classic mojito are fairly basic. The key? Fresh mint and rum. Blackberry mojitos follow the same steps with only one simple addition.

What is the best rum to use in a mojito?

There are many, many rums out there. And a lot of them would work well in this recipe. Our favorites happen to be Bayou Silver or Caña Brava.
