This year my blackberry bush has exhibited super powers.
I'm picking about 1/2 pint of blackberries a day.
It's crazy, but really exciting.
I keep planning everything that I'm going to make with them, but
the first thing on my list was a Blackberry Mojito.
This mojito is so refreshing.
Perfect for sweltering hot days.
(I think that it may be a little dangerous, though, you cannot taste the rum at all!!)
(makes a large mojito)
2 tablespoons sugar
8 mint leaves
2.5 ounces rum
6 ounces club soda
juice from 1/2 lime
lime slice and blackberries for garnish
In a tall glass muddle the blackberries, sugar, and mint leaves until well combined. Add the rum, club soda, and the lime juice. Add ice and stir to combine.
Garnish with a lime slice and blackberries.
