Cherry Blackberry Mojito Recipe Ingredients
Nothing makes a cocktail better than fresh fruit. Fruit adds flavor, sweetness, and a freshness that you can’t get from a bottle. That being said, this recipe calls for cherries as well as blackberries, mint leaves, and a lime. All of the above should be as fresh as possible. It will make a world of difference to put in that little bit of extra effort.
For the stuff you can get out of a bottle, you’ll want to have some Bacardi White Rum and some club soda. Without these two ingredients, you have nothing more than a weak fruit salad.
How to Make Simple Syrup
When it comes to the syrup, making your own is so easy that you have to wonder why people are spending money on bottles of premade simple syrup at the store. All you need is some granulated sugar and water. It’s that simple.
Garnish isn’t as important as you may think but if you’re serving these cocktails up at a party, garnish becomes everything. You can garnish this drink with a few different things like a slice of lime, some mint leaves, cherries or blackberries. All will get the job done and make you look like a pro.
