Blood Orange And Raspberry Mojito Recipe
Blood Orange And Raspberry Mojito Recipe – tartly sweet, simple to make cocktail, that tastes delicious.
Hey guys! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? It felt too short for me! I’m not happy with losing an hour but this way I’ll have more daylight to take my blog photos.
Did I say “mojito”? Oh, yeah, I first thought to make margaritas with the blood oranges I got, but I couldn’t help myself and made these mojitos. You know mojito is my favorite cocktail.
I’m pretty sure that most of my non-US readers are aware that March 8th was International Woman’s Day. I had a fun get together with some of my girlfriends and made these blood orange and raspberry mojitos for them. They were thrilled!
Here in the US we celebrate Mother’s Day instead. You can still make this drink for Mother’s Day, if you are lucky to find some blood oranges.
Luckily they are still in season and I just can’t get enough of them. They are my favorite citrus and then is grapefruit! I love San Pellegrino’s Blood Orange Soda, but we don’t buy sweet sodas very often around here. We prefer fresh juice.
In this cocktail, I used fresh squeezed blood orange juice, juice from mashed raspberries, some simple syrup, rum and sparkling water (soda water). Very quick and easy to make, festive and refreshing.
Hope you like it.
