Heyoooooo errrbody! I’m back and with a whole new set of awesome for you! Instead of being Ange’s resident hair guru (I chopped off all my hair, by the way), I am now the Sultan of Swig, bringing you all sorts of cocktail goodness for you to try! We are going to start out with some fresh, delicious, and fun, with this here Raspberry Mojito recipe. A fruity twist on a classic cocktail, the mojito originally features mint and lime with rum and soda water. For this bad boy, however, we’re adding raspberries and Sprite for tangy, sweet flavor that you are sure to love.
Have you ever muddled ingredients before? Basically, you are just taking a few ingredients and mashing them together to release their flavors. You’re going to do that with some mint, raspberries, a couple ice cubes, and half a shot of clear rum.
Muddle them with whatever you have on hand. I generally use the blunt end of a wooden spoon. Just mash them all together. Yum. Drop in a slice of lime, fill the glass with ice, then add another 3/4 shot of rum and top it off with Sprite. Garnish with a few extra mint leaves and a fresh raspberry and enjoy.
This raspberry mojito recipe is refreshing to the max!
