MIXED BERRY MOJITO Cocktail Recipe



I have a thing for Mojitos in summer. First of all, they are tall, refreshing and cool, plus they're a little lower ABV per sip. This means I get to sit and sip a little longer and more often than I can with a Manhattan or a Martini*. I also happen to have a thing for fresh berries in the summer so this berry laden cocktail shows up a lot in my summer happy hours.


The
MIXED BERRY
MOJITO


INGREDIENTS

1 Oz. Light Rum
1/4 C. Fresh Mixed Berries
1/2 Oz. Berry Liqueur
(For a lower ABV cocktail substitute Berry Simple Syrup for the berry liqueur)
1 Oz. Lime Juice
10 Fresh Mint Leaves
Club Soda

Garnish: Fresh Berries, Mint Sprig, Lime Wedges, Twist

DIRECTIONS
Muddle the lime juice, berry liqueur (or syrup), mint leaves and lime fresh berries in the bottom of a highball glass.
Fill the glass with CRUSHED ice then add the rum.
Stir, then top with soda.
Garnish and serve.

National Mojito Day is July 11th.

*  I did do a Berry Mojito in martini form ages ago. You know, just in case you want this flavor profile with extra kick per sip.
