TO MAKE THIS RECIPE YOU’LL NEED:
- Muddler (or wooden spoon)
- Cute straws (optional, but totally worth it!)
- A large pitcher (if you’re making enough to share, that is)
*You can use any glass you have on hand, but my favorite for mojitos is a tall Collins glass or these fun mason jar glasses.
HERB AND BERRY MUDDLING
Muddling is a bartender’s trick to release the flavors and aromas of herbs, berries, or spices.
A muddler is essentially a large pestle and using your glass as the mortar, it really kicks up the flavor.
DO I REALLY HAVE TO MUDDLE MY BERRIES AND MINT?
Muddling is an important method to get the most out of your ingredients, but don’t worry; it doesn’t have to be perfect to taste good. Raspberries are soft and easy to mash, so you shouldn’t have to work up a sweat during this step.
If you don’t have a muddler you can pick up a stainless steel or bamboo one from Amazon, but if you’re short on time and tools then a long wooden spoon will do the trick.
The point is just to smash the fruit until it looks like jam! (Tip: For an even sweeter taste, sprinkle a bit of sugar with the berries first!)
How to make Raspberry Mojitos:
It takes just minutes to make these simple raspberry mojitos, so you can spend more time lounging by the pool.
Simply muddle your berries, lime, and mint, and then add the rest of the ingredients. This recipe is easy to multiply for parties and fun to dress up!
I love to garnish the glasses with a slice of lime, mint sprig, and a few berries on top for a gorgeous and colorful presentation; a cute, colorful straw brings the whole thing together.
GET CRAZY WITH DIFFERENT VARIATIONS!
The mojito is a drink so versatile that there are endless, and I mean ENDLESS, combinations to try. A citrus-flavored sparkling water will kick the citrus up a notch, and this Blueberry Simple Syrup is perfect for added berry flavor.
For a virgin version, replace the rum with extra simple syrup and voila; a healthy, refreshing drink for you and the kiddos!
Tips and Tricks:
- You can easily double or triple this recipe to make more.
- If you are not a fan of the seeds in raspberries, you can absolutely strain them out.
- If you do not have a muddler, just use a wooden spoon until fruit looks smashed.
