A little sweet, a bit tart, and a touch of tanginess while still being perfectly balanced. Our Blackberry Mojito checks off of the boxes and makes the perfect summer cocktail.

The Classic Mojito made with fresh mint, lime juice, rum, a touch of simple syrup and club soda might be the most well known version of all mojitos. While we love a great traditional mojito, and it’s always fun to experiment with new flavors like this blackberry mojito.

Some other amazing mojito variations worth a try are Strawberry Mojitos, Blueberry Mojitos, Coconut Rum Mojitos, and festive Cranberry Mojitos.

  6. Serve your blackberry mojito immediately!

Blackberry Mojito Tips and Variations:

  • Purchase your favorite white or silver rum for this mojito recipe. A few of our favorite mid-shelf brands are Bacardi, Captain Morgan, Cruzan, and Wicked Dolphin.
  • Freshly squeezed lime juice makes a big difference. It’s light, fresh, and adds a touch of tangy tartiness. For extra brightness, try adding a spritz of lemon juice as well.
  • Taste the blackberries before starting the recipe. This helps to gauge if you will need more or less simple syrup.
  • This recipe has quite a bit of blackberry pulp. If you aren’t a fan of fruit pulp, try one of these options:
    • Strain the blackberry mixture before pouring into the glass. Straining will remove the majority of the seeds, large blackberry pieces, and mint leaves. You’ll be left with a mostly translucent liquid full of flavor and hardly any solid pieces. The mojito will be lighter in color but still very tasty.
    • Reduce the amount of blackberries.
    • Omit the plain simple syrup and blackberries and make a blackberry simple syrup instead. Use as much or as little as you’d like.
  • Make a pitcher of blackberry mojitos by increasing the ingredients by 2, 3, 4, or even 5 times the amount. It’s best to prepare the drink just prior to serving due to the fresh ingredients. Place the ingredients in a large pitcher and serve over ice!
  • This mojito isn’t overly sweet. To make it sweeter, add a little more simple syrup or reduce the amount of club soda.
