Fresh seasonal berries and fresh mint make this Mixed Berry Mojito a favorite summer cocktail. This delicious mixed drink will keep you cool from the summer heat. Omit the rum for a refresher that the kids can enjoy, too!

If you are having a feeling of déjà vu….like you’re pretty sure that you’ve seen this cocktail before, well you have. I created this yummy Berry Mojito as a Panthers Super Bowl 2016 Cocktail, but I didn’t want it to only see the light of day when the Panthers are playing…it is way too delicious to only serve during football season, lol

What is a Mojito?

A Mojito is a traditional Cuban cocktail that often consists of five ingredients: white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and spearmint. Its combination of sweetness, citrus, and herbaceous mint flavors complement the rum, and have made the mojito a popular summer drink.

In my version, the sweetness comes from the blackberry simple syrup and mixed fresh berries that perfectly compliment the other flavors to make your summer dreams come true!

How to make Berry Mojitos:

I started with my Blackberry Simple Syrup recipe, but used half blue berries, and half blackberries.

Blackberries, blueberries, and water simmering in a saucepan.

You can make the syrup ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for a couple of days so you’re ready when a Berry Mojito craving strikes!

Place mint leaves, lime juice, a few crushed ice cubes, and berry syrup in a cocktail shaker.

Add the rum with a few more ice cubes, shake to combine.

Strain into 2 cocktail glasses filled with ice.

Top with club soda, stir and garnish with mint and fresh berries.

  1. I love mojitos! We have a huge blueberry patch, and we’re always looking for blueberry recipes. A cocktail is just what our collection was missing! I may leave out the blackberries, though…can’t stand the seeds. Thanks for sharing! I’m pinning! 🙂

  2. These look yummy! Here is Houston it’s only in the 80’s but, the humidity makes it feel so hot. A mojito will be a perfect way to cool off on the porch this afternoon! Thanks for the recipe.

  3. This looks super refreshing – and I agree, we could all use a drink after doing our taxes! Too bad you can’t send a few degrees out to Michigan…it was in the upper 30s/lower 40s here today. I’ll just crank the heat, make a mojito, and pretend it’s summer!

  4. Hi Lisa, thanks so much for sharing your soooooo fabulous refreshing and delicious Berry Mojito this weekend with Foodie Friends Friday part. Your photos are so stunning as well. I’m ready for this mojito now and it’s only 1:00 pm, but life’s crazy and it’s time to sit back. I’ll be pinning and sharing this weekend. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you again soon with another winning recipe.

  5. I usually don’t go for a traditional mojito because they can be a bit too intense, however, berry ones are just what the doctor ordered for the hot summer days! great post!

    Ok, I don’t have a doctor that prescribes mojitos, but man if i did!
