Mixed Berry & Mint

Right now we are quite enamored with bright, luscious berry colors; specifically, rasberry and blackberry. Paired with 1950's mint green and you have a winning color scheme for late summer. Not to mention, the colors look great as a signature cocktail! Mixed Berry Mojitos, anyone?

Beat the heat with this fun recipe!
Mixed Berry Mojito {makes one pitcher}
1/2 pint each, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries
1/4 c sugar
2 handfuls of fresh mint leaves*
1/4 c fresh squeezed lime juice*
2 1/2 c light rum
sparkling water
*plus additional for garnish

Muddle the berries, mint and sugar together until the berries are thoroughly crushed and juices begin to run. Add lime juice and rum and stir to combine. Top off with sparkling water {adjust to desired alcohol strength} and serve immediately over ice. You may also make the mixture ahead of time, refrigerate and top with water right before serving.
