Another hot summer day means another reason to mix up a round of refreshing, boozy drinks at Brit HQ. This time, we’re all about the mojito. If you’re looking for a dose of midday refreshment, this is a yummy drink even without the rum. ;)
– 1 carton of blackberries, keep 4 reserved
– 1 carton of raspberries, keep 4 reserved
– 1/2 cup rum
– 2 limes
– 2 tsp agave nectar
– 2 cups ice cubes
– 1/2 cup club soda
– tools: blender
You definitely need a blender for this one.
Place about half of your berries in the blender.
Add one cup of ice, squeeze a whole lime into the mix, add the agave, and blend.
Add the rest of the berries and ice, and add a handful of mint. Blend!
Pour into glasses, mason jars, universal party glasses, whatever you like.
For garnish, we’ll use our reserve berries, the second lime, and more mint.
We used a kabob stick broken in half as our fruit skewer, but you could also use a cocktail stirrer. Place your berries on the stick, and then slide through a sprig of mint as it stands up in the drink. Top it off with a lime, a straw, and serve!
If you’re looking for a slushie that’s more like the kind you used to get at 7-11, freeze up the blended mix overnight, and re-blend to serve the following day. And don’t forget to check out our wine slushies! ;)
