The Ultimate Berry Mojito

It is Friday night AND the #UBP14 — the perfect time to indulge in this ULTIMATE Berry Mojito we created.

Mojitos are one of my favorite cocktails and I love to taste the different versions restaurants have to offer. BUT, I hate to pay $8-12 for a cocktail, so most of the mojitos I drink are ones I make myself.

Here is an ultimate version of a mojito we made in honor of the Ultimate Blog Party. This sweet drink, with a dash of tart, takes my favorite Raspberry Mojito up to ultimate levels of delicious with raspberries, blackberries, and crème de cassis, (blackcurrant liqueur.) But no worries — if you don’t have any cassis in your house, just add a bit more rum and muddle a few more berries. I do recommend picking up a bottle of crème de cassis though the next time you are shopping. It is the perfect liqueur for sweetening drinks.

I just wish you could pop over here and I could shake up one of these Berry Mojitos just for you. I love making this drink — it is super fun and the perfect #UBP14 treat!
