I’m usually a wine drinker but there’s something about summertime and the over abundance of everything from sunshine to fresh produce that practically begs for a cold, fruity cocktail like this Raspberry Mint Mojito.

Lightly sweet with plenty of full-on raspberry and mint flavors along with a squeeze of lime to bring it all together. So, so good they should almost come with a warning.

I tasted my first classic Mojito years ago in Key West where there seems to be a 24/7 vacation vibe and breathtaking sunsets.

Those cocktails serve as the inspiration for these Raspberry Mint Mojitos – rum-based cocktails with a burst of summer fruit flavor. They’re also a great venue for the overabundance of mint I happen to have right now.

I made them with Havana Club Rum, a souvenir from a trip our daughter took to Cuba but you can substitute any good quality white rum (not dark or spiced).

Muddle the lime, sugar, mint and raspberries together by placing the muddler in the glass and pressing down gently on the leaves giving it 6-8 twists (don’t over muddle or the mint will become bitter). 

    Add the rum and ice, top it off with club soda then stir well and garnish with extra berries, a couple of sprigs of mint and a slice of lime.side view of raspberry mojito garnished with mint and lime wedge

    How to make classic mojito:

    To make a classic Mojito, follow the simple steps above leaving out the raspberries. Instead of raspberries, you could even substitute other fresh fruit like blackberries, strawberries or mango.

    what to serve with raspberry mint mojitos:

    A little something to snack on is always in order with a good cocktail. It makes the perfect in-home Happy Hour. Here are a few of my favorites:

    Guacamole – made with fresh avocado, lime juice, cilantro, red onion and jalapeno blended together for authentic Mexican flavor.

    Fresh Salsa – Pico De Gallo – light, spicy fresh tomato salsa with a hint of lime and no cooking involved. This stuff is always a hit.

    Buffalo Ranch Snack Mix – crunchy, salty Chex cereal blended with Cheez-It and Goldfish crackers, dry roasted peanuts and Melba toast tossed and baked in Buffalo and Ranch flavors.

    Enjoy!
