I love mojito, it’s one of my favorite cocktails and drinks.
I love the mints and the lime combination, but sometimes, when I want a little fruity flavors, I would get blackberry mojito, which adds a nice punch to it.
Homemade mojito is very easy to make and you can make a big pitcher, especially when you have a party, for example July 4th.
Just one tip to share when you muddle the mint leaves and blackberries: be gentle.
The key is to release the fruity and minty flavors, but not bitterness.
Also, over-muddled blackberries will make your blackberry mojito cloudy.
Have a great July 4th weekend.
