🥫 Storage instructions
To store raspberry mojitos, place them in a pitcher or container and place them in the fridge. They will stay good for up to 3 days.
If you love mojitos, plant a pot of mint outside your back door. It grows like a weed just about anywhere and comes back every year.
Fresh or frozen raspberries are fine, but allow frozen ones to soften at room temperature for a few minutes to make them easier to muddle.
Rum is what you will typically see in a mojito. Some great options are Bacardi, Appleton, Havana Club, and Crazan. But honestly, just pick your favorite and you’ll be good to go.
👩🏻🍳 Expert tips
- Raspberries do have small seeds and if that is something you don’t prefer then you can easily press the raspberries through a fine-mesh strainer.
- Use a citrus juicer to juice your lime. This will save your fingers!
- When muddling, be sure to thoroughly crush the mint leaves to release their flavor.
- Use a dry rum instead of a flavored rum. Use the flavor from the fruit and mint. You’ll be grateful
