Total Time 15 minutes
Serving Size 1 drink

Equipment

  • muddler
  • tall glass

Ingredients 

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 12 large mint leaves
  • ¼ cup blackberries
  • ½ cup club soda
  • ¼ cup white rum

Instructions 

  • Prepare the glass. Place the blackberries, mint leaves, sugar, and lime juice into the tall glass you intend to use for serving.
  • Muddle the ingredients. Using a muddler, gently press down and twist on the blackberries, mint leaves, sugar, and lime juice mixture until the mint is slightly bruised and the blackberries release their juices. This usually takes about 30 to 45 seconds. Avoid over-muddling to prevent the mint from becoming bitter.
  • Add ice. Fill the glass about three-quarters full with ice cubes to chill the mixture and refresh the drink.
  • Pour in the liquids. Slowly add the white rum and club soda to the glass, pouring over the ice to mix the drink gently and maintain its fizz.
  • Stir and garnish. Stir the mixture gently with a long spoon to combine all the ingredients well. Garnish with a few whole blackberries, a sprig of fresh mint, and a lime wedge on the rim of the glass.
  • Serve immediately. Serve the mojito immediately to enjoy its freshness and vibrant flavors.

Notes

To make your drink look more attractive, place a lime slice inside the glass after mixing.
Gently slide a thin slice of lime inside the glass before adding the ingredients. This will add color and elegance to your drink, which will be visible through the glass.
For a more refreshing experience, keep your club soda, rum, and blackberries in the fridge before making the mojito. A chilled drink is more refreshing, especially on a warm day.
To make your mojito more bubbly, add the club soda before serving instead of mixing it too early to maintain the fizz, making your mojito more enjoyable.
Instead of crushed ice, use larger ice cubes. They melt slowly and won’t dilute your mojito as quickly as crushed ice.

More Tips:

When making a mojito, be gentle when muddling the mint and blackberries. You just need to release the flavors without completely pulverizing the ingredients. If you over-muddle the mint, it can make the drink taste bitter.

The type of rum you use can also affect the taste of your mojito. To enhance the overall taste of your cocktail, use a good quality white rum that is smooth and not overly strong in flavor.

If you prefer your mojito to be a bit sweeter, you can adjust the amount of sugar according to your taste preference. It’s better to start with less sugar and add more if needed after tasting.

For a perfect mojito, it’s always better to use fresh lime juice and mint. Bottled lime juice and dried mint won’t provide the same fresh and vibrant flavors essential for this cocktail.

If you want to mix up your Blackberry Mojito recipe, here are some easy substitutions to try:

  • Blackberries: You can use raspberries or blueberries to give the drink a different flavor that’s just as delicious.
  • White Rum: Vodka or gin are good options, but it will slightly alter the taste.
  • Club Soda: Switch out club soda for tonic water with a sweeter taste or sparkling water with something less sweet.
  • Sugar: Replace sugar with honey or agave syrup. They might be sweeter than granulated sugar, so adjust the amount you like.
