This raspberry mojito recipe is a refreshing drink that combines sweet raspberries, rum, and mint, perfect for warmer weather.
After a long day, there’s nothing better than sitting back and relaxing with a refreshing raspberry mojito. This easy-to-make drink is the perfect combination of fruity and rum.JUMP TO RECIPE
While I share big-batch summer drink recipes, like hard lemonade or white sangria, this raspberry mojito is excellent because it’s made directly in the glass. Perfect for when you want just one (although I doubt you won’t want seconds after trying this delicious cocktail!).
Step By Step Instructions
For the Raspberry Puree:
In a small saucepan, add the raspberries, water, and sugar.
Cook for 5 to 6 minutes until thickened.
Strain with a sieve to remove the seeds and smooth the mixture. You can add some seeds to the mix if desired.
For storage, keep it in a bottle or jar. This recipe makes approximately 2 cups of syrup that can be used anytime you want to make a mojito.
For the mojitos:
In a 10 to 12oz highball glass, crush the three raspberries and mint leaves together with a cocktail muddler or the back of a spoon.
Add the ice and some whole raspberries, followed by the rum.
Next, add the raspberry puree.
Top up the glass with soda water.
Garnish with slices of fruit and more mint and enjoy every last sip!
Erren’s Top Tips
- Always make sure to build this drink in the glass for the best possible flavor.
- Never tear the mint leaves, as it allows the bitterness of the stem to filter through the drink. You also want to avoid breaking them up into small pieces that will block your straw.
- Gently stir your mojito – the key to a mojito balance – you want to be able to taste each element with all of them working together.
- Please don’t skip the garnish mint sprig – position it on the rim of the glass so that you get the aroma of the mint with every sip.
- Storing the raspberry puree: Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container or jar. It should last for up to 3 days.
- To make the Raspberry purée last longer, add a splash of lemon juice to it. The lemon will help it last up to a week in the fridge.
