Blackberry Lemonade Cake Mojito

This week’s I Heart Cooking Clubs theme is Salud!  I’m always one for a good cocktail, so of course I couldn’t resist putting together a great summer drink from Rick’s recipe collection.

I love berries in the summer, and Rick’s Blackberry Mojito spoke to me…okay it sang to me.  Half the battle with cooking or making cocktails is working with what you’ve got.  Some of my favorite recipes have come from not having all the right ingredients and winging it a little.  That’s going on today.  It worked out fantastically!

  1. In a rocks glass, muddle together blackberries, simple syrup, lime juice, and mint leaves – chunks of fruit are okay.

    I'm sad I missed booze…um…I mean beverage week. But this drink will perk me right up (I love blackberries btw). Took a look at the original recipe–I think I like your version more. Thanks for linking up!

    Thank you for inviting me for Get Your Chef On. Unfortunately, none of us likes coconut.

    This looks like a drink I would enjoy. I'm a fan of mojitos so I think I would like a mojito with berries! Thanks for sharing on Marvelous Mondays!
