Thirsty Thursday---Blackberry Mojito

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!!)

Blackberry Mojitos
(makes a large mojito)

10 blackberries
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.



  1. Oh, I am SUCH a sucker for mojitos! Coincidentally, I just came home from the grocery store with 4 small pkgs. of blackberries! Also, I've got a killer recipe for blackberry ice cream, if you're interested.
