Blackberry Mojito

I live in South Florida, and mojitos are practically our official drink. Well, besides orange juice and Cuban coffee… Fresh berries, citrus, and vodka. Need I say more? I love cocktails made with fresh fruit, but they’re not something I make for myself. I consider myself challenged in the bartending department. As a result, I play it safe at home with simple cocktails like a vodka tonic. Or just a beer now and then. It can get a little boring, and that’s about to change with this Blackberry Mojito.

The Ingredients

Just a few ingredients to make a refreshing cocktail. This blackberry mojito recipe was a nice intro to making a fruit-based drink at home. Vodka is my go-to spirit, so having it as an ingredient instead of rum really made me want to try making this recipe.

The first time I made this recipe, I had just discovered Summum at Total Wine. It’s not as pricey as other French vodkas, but I think it’s every bit as good. I still buy it, but when I decided to redo this post, all I had was Absolut. It’s my go-to brand, so that’s what I used for the update.

Blackberry Mojito Ingredients
Blackberries, mint leaves, lime juice, lemon juice, vodka, sugar, and seltzer water

The Process

Easy to follow and straightforward directions. The only special equipment you need is a muddler, but they’re easy to find and inexpensive. Use the wooden spoon or muddler to gently crush the blackberries and mint in order to release their flavor.

The first time I made this recipe, I used a muddler and I think I overdid it a little. I ended up with cloudy Blackberry Mojitos. When I redid the photos, I used a wooden spoon. It was gentler on the mint leaves, but I was still able to smash the blackberries with it. I liked the results much better.

More proof that a good recipe doesn't need a lot of ingredients or complicated steps. This drink is a fruity combination of sweet and tart. The flavors all blend nicely, and you can't taste the vodka at all. Start to finish took 5 minutes, half the time specified.
