Blackberry Mojito – A classic mojito with a spin! Just 5 simple ingredients make this blackberry cocktail the perfect summer drink.
Blackberries are a favorite of mine that I love using in everything from blackberry bread to blackberry jam to blackberry lemonade. It is a wonderful berry with so much flavor that it’s hard not to love! After making my classic mojito recipe a few weeks back, I had been looking for fun variations to try and the first one up on the docket was a blackberry mojito. The combination of mint, lime, and blackberries was so wonderful and tasted like summer in a glass.
When I serve this recipe, I like to put lots of fresh mint leaves and pieces of lime in. It makes the drink visually interesting and beautiful while also lending a little extra flavor. I suggest leaving the mint leaves whole so that it’s harder to end up with one going up your straw.
The recipe makes one serving but you can always scale it up if you are serving more people. Enjoy!

Do you muddle mint or use a simple syrup?
So for this recipe, there are three options for adding mint flavor and sweetness to this drink –
