Blackberry Mojito

44183331 - tasty blackberry cocktail in wine glass with mint and ice on dark wooden table. summer berry lemonade

Growing up on a farm meant my list of chores included helping pick blackberries. These juicy morsels of sour deliciousness meant we were going to be enjoying homemade fresh blackberrypie, cobbler and jam. I could try to describe just how amazing these desserts and jam were, but there really are no words. You’ll just have to trust me… they were heavenly! 

Last night I asked my mother what variety of blackberries she planted on the farm. She said that she didn’t remember the name however the plants she planted were a thornless variety. That makes sense because I don’t remember ever getting stuck by thorns when picking blackberries.

Serves 1
First of all, a traditional mojito is a cocktail that consists of white rum, simple syrup, lime juice, club soda, and mint. The white rum compliments the combination of sweetness, citrus, and mint flavors. A mojito usually has a relatively low alcohol content, however, you can modify the amount to suit your individual taste.
