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 deliciousness with raspberries, blackberries, and crème de cassis, (blackcurrant liqueur.)
6 raspberries (reserve a couple for garnishing)
6 blackberries (reserve a couple for garnishing)
8-10 mint leaves/sprigs (reserve a couple for garnishing)
1 teaspoon of sugar (or a pinch of stevia)
.75 shot of lime juice
Ice (crushed or cubed)
1.5 shots of white rum (dark or spiced rum work well too)
.75 shot of crème de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur)
In a Collins glass, muddle raspberries, blackberries, stevia/sugar, lime juice, and mint leaves.
In a beverage shaker, add ice and rum and shake vigorously. Pour into glass with muddled ingredients. Add crème de cassis and top with club soda.
Garnish with remaining berries and mint leaves.
