Hawaiian Blackberry Mojitos

CocktailsFood & Drinks
Though I don't drink in abundance, I do enjoy an alcoholic beverage now and again - especially when they're paired with a lazy sun-filled day. And though I'm equipped with a handful of classic recipes in my back pocket, I know for certain that there's always room for more. Especially when Kylie Martin and Caroline Potter are behind the scenes. Their hawaiian blackberry mojitos? A new favourite!

From Kylie Martin... I live in Hawaii and in Hawaii we love ourselves a good tropical drink. Enter: this little Blackberry Mojito. First off let me say, it's so delicious and secondly it's beautiful. I think it is the perfect drink for a summertime afternoon wedding. I spent ages looking for the perfect cocktail and when I stumbled upon Caroline's recipe I immediately fell in love.

The rum adds a bit of sweetness, if choosing to omit you may want to add a drizzle of raw honey to contrast the tart berries
