Mojito (pronounced moe-hee-toe) is Cuba’s most famous cocktail. It is important that the blackberries and mint are gently muddled - never crushed - to release their flavors but not release harsh or bitter tannins into the beverage. A wooden spoon or firm silicone spatula can be used in place of a muddler.

Ingredients

  • Driscoll’s Blackberries
  • large mint leaves
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cups seltzer water
  • 1/4 cups vodka or rum
  • 6 to 8ice cubes

Directions

  1. Muddle blackberries, mint leaves, sugar, lemon juice and lime juice in a tall glass until berries are mostly crushed.
  2. Add seltzer, vodka, and ice.
  3. Stir well and serve.
