This Raspberry Mojito looks and tastes like summer! With the same combination of lime and mint as a classic mojito but with the added beauty and sweet taste of juicy raspberries.
Bright and refreshing, it is perfect for warmer weather. These mojitos are my summer go-to cocktail and can easily be made into a mocktail!
- Mint leaves roughly chopped
- Mint Simple Syrup
- Fresh lime juice
- White Rum
Mint Simple Syrup Ingredients:
- fresh mint roughly chopped
In a saucepan on medium-high heat add sugar, water, and fresh mint. Bring to a boil, then stir constantly, until sugar dissolves in the simmer. Turn off the heat and set it aside to allow it to cool completely for 20 minutes. Strain the mint leaves out of the syrup.
In the bottom of your mojito glass add lime juice, raspberries, and mint simple syrup. Using a cocktail muddler, muddle together for 3-4 minutes until fully combined and mint flavor has infused throughout.
Pour in your rum and add ice. Stir again. Top the remainder of your glass with sparkling water, club soda, or soda water, and top with garnishes.
Can I make this a virgin raspberry mojito?
Absolutely! Mojitos work well as a mocktail. Simply don’t add the rum and you have yourself a delicious nonalcoholic raspberry mojito mocktail.
Can you use frozen raspberries?
Yes! If fresh raspberries are not an option, frozen raspberries work well too! Just make sure to thaw the raspberries first.
Can you use other berries?
Definitely! Use the same recipe but switch the berries or fruit. Consider strawberries, pineapple, blackberries, mango, or blueberries!
