These easy, summery blackberry mojitos come together in just a few minutes. It's a simple spin on a classic mojito, with the addition of fresh blackberries for extra freshness and sweetness.


Units Scale
  • 6 blackberries
  • 6 small or 4 large mint leaves
  • 1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 oz rum
  • Club soda or sparkling water for topping
  • Ice


  1. Add the blackberries, mint leaves, lime juice and sugar to a highball cocktail glass. Use a muddler to gently smash and mix together the blackberries and mint. Don't over-muddle, otherwise the mint will become bitter. 
  2. Add in the rum. 
  3. Fill the glass with ice, then top off with club soda or sparkling water and stir. 
  4. Optional: garnish with fresh mint and more blackberries. 


What to do if you don't have a muddler: A muddler is essential to making a mojito in order to extract the flavor from the mint and dissolve the sugar. A wooden spoon is probably the best alternative. You can also use any kind of wooden dowel or even a traditional mortar and pestle.

Chill your cocktail glasses in the freezer while you make your drink to keep it extra cool while sipping. (This is especially handy on a hot summer day!)

Mojitos are traditionally served in a highball glass. It's typically served on the rocks with a straw.
