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. So I created another flovor – Blood Orange And Raspberry Mojito.
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.
If you’ve enjoyed my blood orange recipes lately, you might be excited to hear that I’m putting together a blood orange recipe roundup from my favorite bloggers on the web and I’ll share it with you very soon.

Mira – your pictures are fantastic! My weekend felt too short too – but, it sure was nice to see the sun and feel the warmer temps – perfect for mojito-sipping! 🙂
Hiii Meera! No doubt, daylight savings throws me off.. and I’ll be feeling it for the next week! I think mojitos are one of my favorite adult beverages.. I think it’s the mint and fruit that get me every time. I also love that they’re refreshing. Beautiful and delicious, this one will be made Friday night!
I’m am all sorts of messed up from Daylight savings. I actually slept in today because I simply could not get up. This could take a while to get use to. This mojito is simply stunning! I love the use of blood oranges. They offer such a gorgeous color!
I haven’t had a mojito in ages. These look absolutely beautiful! The whole jump forward thing has really hit me hard this year for some reason so I think I’ll reward myself one of these at the end of the week if I stick to my schedule and don’t keep sleeping in.
Monday and mojitos belong together, Mira! And this mojito is GORGEOUS! The color alone has me wishing it was 5 o’clock, but the blood orange and raspberry flavors sound PERFECT! I am most definitely making myself one of these tonight… I know I’ll need one, since this already feels like the longest day ever since we lost that hour of sleep over the weekend! Pinned! Clink clink!! 😉
These mojitos are stunning Mira! I love the colours! Such a delicious flavour combination too. Pinned!
You’re killing me with all of these blood orange recipes, Mira (in the best possible way, of course)! This looks so pretty and delicious!
I’ve only ever made a standard mint mojito before, but definitely am inspired to try out some new variations after seeing this post! Looks so refreshing and I bet it tastes perfect too!
Mmmm! This is going on the list of “stuff I’m making as soon as I’m not pregnant anymore!” I just love anything blood orange.
Loving this mojito for my Monday blues!!!! Yaaaassss ?
looks so refreshing Mira! you make the best mojitos!
oh wow! These photos are sensational, Mira. And this mojito is so refreshing!
Your blog is definitely THE place to go for blood orange recipes. I am heading to the store soon, so I am going to look out for them and save some to make this at the weekend.
I like the idea of Women’s Day. It’s so much more inclusive than Mother’s Day. Why can’t we do both? 🙂
This drink is super lovely, and you can be sure I’ll be trying it this weekend without the holiday as an excuse!
That’s funny 🙂 We usually do both 🙂 Two is better than one 🙂 Thanks Mir!
Mira, Friday night can’t seem to come quick enough now that I see your delicious recipe from a blood orange and raspberry mojito. Gorgeous photos, just stunning. Sharing everywhere!
Thanks Bobi! This is a perfect recipe for a Friday, but I just couldn’t wait 🙂
Thanks for sharing!
This is the prettiest mojito ever! I love the blood orang and raspberry combo! The time change has our schedule all messed up too but I definitely love the extra hour of sunlight 🙂
Girl, your photos always blow me away! Gorgeous!
Raspberry mojito recipe is by far the best one I’ve ever had. I believe the simple syrup instead of the sugary bottom residue completely takes the flavors of the fruit to another level. Thanks for sharing this awesomeness.
