Our first Perfect Summer Cocktail is a Blackberry Mojito! When we were in Mexico over New Years, we took a margarita making class and at the end, we asked if we could learn how to make a killer mojito as well. I had never really been a mojito fan until that night and now I love them. So, I thought I would put a little twist on the classic one we learned how to make and add my favorite summer fruit, blackberries!
I made this for my parents last weekend and they absolutely loved it because of how light and refreshing it tastes. Try it for yourself, and let me know what you think of this recipe...
