Make this raspberry mojito at home. Sweet and refreshing, ready in under 5 minutes. The perfect drink to serve at a party or just enjoy by yourself.
Please don’t get bored! Everyone knows how much I love mojitos and enjoy creating my own versions with different fruits (mostly berries).
We are so close to Easter and this fruity mojito could be a great addition to your holiday menu, because celebrating with cocktails is always fun!
And of course, this is not a strong cocktail, so it could easily be served for brunch.
What ingredients do you need to make Raspberry Mojito?

For The Raspberry Mojito:

How to make Raspberry Mojito?
Prepare simple syrup, by combining 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water and bringing it to a boil.
Stir to let sugar dissolve and remove from heat. Let syrup cool.
In a sturdy glass add mint leaves, raspberries, lime juice, rum and simple syrup.
With a muddler or a wooden spoon, muddle to extract juices from mint leaves and raspberries.
Add ice to the glass and top with soda water.
Garnish with more fresh raspberries, mint leaves or lime slices.
Making Mojito with simple syrup
I made this raspberry mojito with simple syrup.
It just makes the cocktail evenly sweet, I don’t like how sugar settles on the bottom and does not get dissolved in some drinks.
The combination of tart raspberries, lime and fresh mint is refreshing to the max!
Fresh berries – while I’ve had some criticism from some readers for leaving the flesh in this type of cocktails, I do believe that it should not be discarded.
If the berry seeds bother you, feel free to extract the juice from the raspberries and leave the seeds out.
I recently saw a recipe for raspberry mojito made with vodka, so you guys feel free to experiment.
Can you make a mojito with vodka?
I used rum in this one, but will definitely try it with vodka.
I hope you enjoy it! Or at least imagine you are at the beach!

I am inlove with this mojito! I love cocktails and it’s just another major plus that there are Raspberries in it too! Looks beautiful…
Just made the raspberry monitor. So gooood!
i’m concerned here…. there’s one cup of sugar for ONE drink? that is just crazy. that’s roughly 64 grams of sugar. that’s almost tripled what one should have in a single day. are you sure i’m reading this correctly?
i’m an idiot. you can delete these comments i’m so sorry lol definitely didn’t read it right.
You first make the simple syrup, then you use a part of it in the drink. I would never make a drink with a cup of sugar…
Hi! I’m hoping to make this for about 30
People in a punch?! Do you have a modification for that?!
Hi Sydney ! Hope you like it! I have no modification for 30 people. I’d just multiply the ingredients by 30 and add ice.
