This Strawberry Blackberry Mojito is as tasty as it is beautiful! I don’t know if you’ll be the life of the party, but I sure know it will be a hit!
I made this batch on a hot, sunny day, sat on the patio and drank them like they were my job. Actually, they kind of are…I mean, I blog. I made them for the blog. Logical.
Drinking mojitos is my job.
With the onset of warmer weather, I’ve been thinking about putting my toes in the sand and kicking back with a cold one. Even kicking back on the porch, which is where I’ll more-than-likely be, but, yeah, that’s better than holed up in the house in 3 layers of clothes!!
Strawberries are in season and I’ve been buying some every week! The last couple of weeks, they’ve also had great looking blackberries, so I loaded up on them too! I love to pack the boys lunch with fresh fruit. However, Friday arrived and I knew the berries wouldn’t keep until Monday. I had to act fast!
So they went from being a nutritious snack for the boys to a cocktail for me! A logical transition, right?
I substituted vodka for the traditional rum in this mojito version, but you could use rum if you prefer.
