Blackberry Mojitos | Delish D'Lites

My 3 closest girlfriends and I have known each other for 20 years, and we make it a point to get together once a month at each other’s homes for dinner, drinks and lots of gossip.  Elegant cocktails are always part of the celebration, and we always try and mix up our libations based on the flavors of the season.  That’s why I was so excited to try the seasonal Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale for this month’s ladies night.

Next, in a shaker glass, add 8-10 mint leaves and half a lime, cut into small wedges.  Use a muddler to crush the limes and mint, this will help release the juices and oils from the mint and lime.

Pour in 2 1/2 ounces of white rum, and 1 ¼ ounces of blackberry puree into the shaker glass.  Shake to combine.  Pour the mixture into a highball glass, over ice (I’m using a 10 ounce glass).
