blackberry mojito mocktail

Summer is right around the corner and nothing says summer like an ice cold drink! I don't drink alcohol but I still love a tasty beverage. One of my favorites is a virgin mojito with blackberries.

A handful of mint (10-15 mint leaves)
1 teaspoon of honey
Juice of 2-3 limes
Sparking water
Coconut water
Ice (blackberry ice cubes- optional)

Begin by adding the mint leaves and honey to a cocktail shaker or mason jar.
Using a muddler, muddle the mint leaves and honey.
Add the lime juice, sparkling water, a dash of coconut water and a few blackberries.
Shake well.
Pour the mixture into two tall glasses and fill the glasses with ice. I used blackberry ice cubes for some extra flavor.
Garnish with lime, mint leaves and blackberries.
I added blackberry sugar (cane sugar with a few drops of blackberry puree) to the rim of the glasses.
