This raspberry mojito is sweet and refreshing, ready in under 5 minutes. Its the perfect drink to serve at a party or just enjoy by yourself.
Happy Friday! Yeah, we made it through the week! To celebrate my favorite day of the week (Friday) I made you a Mojito! Please don’t get bored! Everyone knows how much I love mojitos and enjoy creating my own versions with different fruits (mostly berries).
I made this raspberry mojito with simple syrup. It just makes the cocktail evenly sweet, I don’t like how sugar settles on the bottom and does not get dissolved in some drinks.
The combination of tart raspberries, lime and fresh mint is refreshing to the max!
Fresh berries – while I’ve had some criticism from some readers for leaving the flesh in this type of cocktails, I do believe that it should not be discarded. If the berry seeds bother you, feel free to extract the juice from the raspberries and leave the seeds out.
I recently saw a recipe for raspberry mojito made with vodka, so you guys feel free to experiment.
I hope you enjoy it!
