Blackberry & Mint Mojito

My mint plant has started flowering – beautiful fluffy purple flowers which make me happy to look at every morning. At the same time as making me happy, they’re a daily reminder that I haven’t used any mint for a super long time, which seems as good a reason as any, while the mint is offering double wonderfulness: flavour and decoration, to get involved in mojitos again. It’s mojito time!

What you need:

  • Small handful blackberries
  • 2tsp sugar
  • 3 mint sprigs
  • 50ml white rum
  • 2 slices of lime
  • Crushed ice
  • Tonic water to top up

It’s really easy:

  • In a cocktail mixer, muddle (gently crush) the mint, blackberries and sugar together. Don’t fully crush them, just enough that they start to release some juice and aromas. Like falling in love: when it’s right – you’ll know it.
  • Add the rum and shake shake shake.
  • Put a generous amount of crushed ice into two glasses and then add the rum, sugar. mint and berries on top of it.
  • Top up with tonic water, stir and yum.
