Refreshing Blackberry Mojito Recipe

Learn how to make a blackberry mojito.

Blackberries are my favorite fruit ever. During the summer, I just can’t get enough of them. They remind me of being a kid, picking tons of wild blackberries, which grow as a weed in Texas.

Mint is another of my favorite summer flavors. (It’s so good on watermelon, by the way.)

I love the refreshing minty taste of a mojito, and when you add blackberries, it’s even better. So a blackberry mojito was a no-brainer. And let me tell you: it’s as delicious as it sounds!

Which rum is best for mojitos?

For mojitos, I prefer a nice white rum. We had a ton of Bacardi Silver already, so I used that.

What is a muddler?

A muddler is a tool with a flat end, used to crush the fruit and leaves to release the flavors. Most herbs release more oils when you tear or crush them rather than cutting them (like a blender would do.)

If you don’t have a muddler, you can use the flat end of another utensil, like a spoon to smash the leaves. If you have a mortar and pestle on hand, that would also work.

About Mint Plants

You can buy fresh mint in most grocery stores, but I prefer to grow my own so that I have it on hand all summer long.

Mint is an easy herb to grow, even if you have a black thumb.

Always grow it in a pot, unless you *really* like mint. It will take over the entire garden and it’s very difficult to remove it.

Mint can tolerate some shade and is pretty hardy (aka hard to kill.) Best of all, it will come back year after year.

Note: You can strain the fruit out if you prefer, but I would let the drink sit for about 10 minutes to let the flavors absorb first.
