Fresh Mojito Recipe

I just love making mojitos all summer long! With their fresh and bright flavors, they are perfect for the warm weather.

And as part of that, we like to shake things up and make different flavor for guests.

Berries are one of my favorite things and this drink looks and tastes amazing!

What is a Mojito?

This classic cocktail recipe is made with lime, mint, rum. sugar, and a sparkling water element.

It is a Cuban cocktail that is widely popular and full of refreshing flavors!

Ingredients Needed

Here is what you need to make a Blackberry Mojito:

  • White (Clear) Rum
  • Fresh Mint
  • Limes
  • Blackberries
  • Sugar
  • Club Soda

You could choose to use tonic or even a lemon-lime soda instead of the club soda, if desired. But both of those options will be sweeter.

Either fresh or frozen blackberries work just fine! No need to drain frozen berries, but you will want them to not be rock hard in order to mash them up.

What alcohol is best for mojitos?

A white or clear rum is classic and best for this recipe.

A darker rum has more of a deep flavor to it. And while you can absolutely use it, it will adjust the flavor of the drink and make it taste a little less light and fresh due to the richness of the aged, dark rum.

Can you use Malibu in a mojito?

Yes, absolutely! But it will bring some coconut flavor to the drink. So if you are good with the blackberry coconut flavor, go for it!

How to Make a Blackberry Mojito – Instruction Overview

First you want to muddle the berries, mint, sugar, and lime together. This can be done right in the glass! (more about muddling below!)

Then add ice, rum, and top with the club soda.

How do you Muddle?

Muddling means you are pressing and mashing the ingredients together.

To muddle the mint and blackberries, you want to place them with the lime juice and sugar in the glass or in a cocktail shaker.

The use a muddler to repeatedly press and twist the ingredients together, breaking the berries and helping all of the ingredients meld.

No muddler? You can also use the end of a wooden spoon or something that has a thick handle.

Blackberry Mojito Mocktail

You can very easily make this a non-alcoholic mojito.

Simply skip the rum and use more soda water instead.

There are so many flavors in the drink that it will still taste just as great and no flavor profile will be missing!

Notes

Turn this drink into a mocktail (without liquor) by omitting the rum and replacing with more club soda, tonic, or lemon lime soda.
You can use a sweeter mix in if preferred (instead of club soda) such as tonic or lemon lime soda.
I do not recommend using simple syrup in place of the sugar unless you want a very sweet drink.
These can be made in a batch in advance by combining all ingredients except the club soda together. Top off each glass as poured with the club soda.
