Hello Dream A Little Bigger readers! I’m Sasha from Tattooed Martha. I feel extremely honored to become a contributor here and twice a month I’ll be providing you healthy home-cooked recipes, original cocktails, and of course the occasional sweet tooth splurge!
I thought I would start things off with a delicious mojito using fresh blackberries and mint. Since blackberries are at their peak right now, their flavor is perfect for this cocktail!
(makes 1 drink)
10 fresh blackberries
8-10 fresh mint leaves
2 tsp sugar
Juice from half of a lemon (about 1 Tbs)
Juice from half of a lime (about 1 Tbs)
2oz rum (I prefer Sailor Jerry Rum, but you can also use light rum or even vodka)
Club soda or seltzer water
Extra mint leaves and blackberries for garnish
In a tall glass, muddle blackberries, mint, sugar, lime, and lemon juices with a muddler or wooden spoon until sugar is dissolved and berries are mashed.
Add rum, ice, and top with club soda. Give it a light stir, garnish, and serve!
