Happy Friday !!!

What are you doing this weekend? Watching the game on Sunday?

I’m all ready for summer right now! Too bad I have to wait a few more months. How about you ?

I know it is still January, but I like drinking mojitos all year long! That’s why toady I’m back with another very easy recipe – Blackberry Mojito.

This drink could definitely be enjoyed year-round.

I don’t always drink rum, but when I do – it is usually in a cocktail like the one I’m sharing today.

It has been on my list to share more cocktail recipes in 2015, so I’m slowly tying to achieve my goal.

 

Refreshing Blackberry Mojito

I got some fresh blackberries for a dessert recipe I was planning to try and thought making a blackberry cocktail was a great idea!

I know mojito is a Cuban drink, but I usually order them at my favorite Mexican restaurant and I thought this drink would be a great addition to the Mexican inspired recipes I shared this week.

Light, sweet, fruity and refreshing.

Let’s celebrate the weekend with a nice, minty and delicious drink.

I know I’ve mentioned that before, but I really love making mojito with simple syrup. It balances the flavors of this drink very well.
