Raspberry Mojito is a refreshing cocktail with fruity vibrant raspberries with a splash of mint.
I love mojitos of every flavour! Just a sip of this refreshing drink has an ability to transport your ‘happy place’ or your most memorable holiday! Given that its name derives from ‘mojo’ an African word meaning to ‘cast a spell’ – there is definitely something magical about drinking Mojito.
I often judge a bartender’s skill by their Mojito making skills. Too much or less ice, too much lime, not enough sugar, too much muddling- you get the gist! This spin on the ‘Classic Mojito’ is refreshing, fruity, sweet and minty at the same time. A perfect harmony of all the ingredients is what makes a good Mojito!
I follow a simple rule of 1:1:2 ratio – Lime: sugar: rum and one can’t go wrong! Like any popular cocktail/mocktail or drink, Mojito has endless variations. This Raspberry Mojito has fresh raspberries muddled with other mojito ingredients. My husband is not very keen on any type of berries, but he would happily drink a Raspberry Mojito any time!
