Berry Mojito!

For after a long day of berry picking in the fall and you just need to sit back and relax while enjoying your labors.

Wild Berry Mojito

8 to 12 fresh mint leaves

3 to 4 fresh blackberries

3 to 4 fresh blueberries

3 to 4 fresh red raspberries

1/8 cup lime juice

2 to 4 tsp. of sugar

1-12 oz. glass of crushed ice

2 oz. light rum

1/4 cup soda water

1 fresh mint sprig (for garnish)


Carefully press mint leaves into the bottom of the glass with the back of a wooden spoon to release their oils (do not tear leaves).

Mix mint, crushed wild berries, lime juice and sugar in a 12-ounce glass.

Fill glass with crushed ice.

Stir well until the ice is reduced by 1/3 and then top with more crushed ice, stirring until the glass begins to frost on the outside.

Pour in soda water and rum, stir again. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
