Keeping this post short and sweet to get right to the point and introduce you to the cocktail you’ll be wanting to make all summer long: Blackberry Lemonade Mint Mojito!
How to Make Blackberry Lemonade Mint Mojitos
This drink was a fun concoction I made for my Birthday party a few weeks ago and was an instant hit, so I know it’s the perfect cocktail to impress any guest!
The trick here is to muddle the blackberries and mint until they form a thick paste so that all the flavor from these ingredients gets released into the drink. After muddling, the blackberries will end up completely crushed, but the mint will likely just looked bruised after muddling.
Next, make sure to choose a quality lemonade. This is crucial for making this drink taste fresh and not too sweet. I recommend making a homemade lemonade or finding a store-bought lemonade that isn’t jam-packed with sugar or extra ingredients for the best results. While I made this cocktail with cubes iced, crushed ice would also taste amazing in this mint mojito!
I used Avider Cider Company Blackberry Cider for this drink which adds extra alcohol to the mix. If you can’t find a blackberry cider, replacing it with an unflavored cider will still work- though it may have less of a blackberry color and flavor. If you do go with a normal cider, try to choose one that isn’t flavored or is berry flavored (not apple flavored).
