Want to impress your guests with the perfect summer cocktail? Featuring a homemade raspberry sugar syrup and delicious white rum, our Raspberry Mojito recipe will have your friends believing that you are a cocktail connoisseur!
In a saucepan, combine the sugar and water and cook over low heat until the sugar dissolves.
Remove saucepan from the heat and add in the raspberries.
Let the mixture steep (the longer the better, but wait at least an hour if you can!).
For best results, we recommend making the mojitos one at a time in a cocktail shaker.
In a cocktail shaker, muddle or crush the 1/4 of the lime wedges and mint leaves.
Add in 2 tablespoons of the raspberry syrup, 60ml of white rum and 15ml of raspberry liquer.
Add ice, cover, shake, and then strain into a glass over ice.
Garnish with a few fresh raspberries and serve!
Which raspberry liqueur should I use?
For best results, we recommend using Chambord, which is a premium dark raspberry liqueur with French origins.
Is it better to use fresh raspberries?
For the raspberry syrup, either fresh or frozen raspberries will return delicious results. The raspberries to serve are best fresh, as they will be more enjoyable to eat. However, if you only have frozen berries on hand you can always defrost them slightly and you'll still get a great outcome.
