Ingredients

Berry Syrup

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup honey
  • 3 1/2 cups berries fresh or frozen

Berry Mojito

  • 2 cups rum
  • 24 mint leaves ounces or cups
  • 6 cups lime juice
  • 4 cups berry syrup
  • 2 cups club soda
  • 3 fresh limes thinly sliced
  • Ice

Instructions

Berry Syrup

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a medium saucepan over medium high hear. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until the berries disintegrate, about 15 minutes, stirring every 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool to warm.
  2. Place a mesh metal colander over a large bowl, and strain the mixture, pressing on the berry pulp that remains in the mesh colander to get out all the remaining berry juices. Discard the pulp, and pour the syrup into airtight containers (like mason jars). Allow to cool to room temperature uncovered, then cover and refrigerate. Will keep for 1 month in the refrigerator. Makes about 4 cups of berry syrup.

Berry Mojito

  1. Place half of the mint leaves in the bottom of a large pitcher. Use a muddler or the end of a wooden spoon to press gently all over the mint for about 30 seconds (this helps the mint release its tasty essential oils). Add the remaining fresh mint, the rum, lime juice, berry syrup, club soda, and stir to combine. Add the lime slices and ice and serve immediately. Makes 12 servings.

  2. PS: The color of your berry mojito will vary depending on the berries you use. I used mostly raspberries with a few blackberries and blueberries.
