A delicious cocktail that instantly puts your mind on a beach with your very first taste is a Mojito.
It is a wonderful blend of mint, lime and sugar, topped with the rich taste of white rum and soda. But, what if we changed it ever so slightly and added a hint of colour and flavour to this Cuban classic?
The Blackberry Mojito
Two twists I have added to the classic Mojito are blackberries and watermelon.
The Blackberry Mojito blends so well with the mint and gives it an explosive flavour. The berries also give you an added sweetness and a deep beautiful dark colour.

- 1-2 lime wedges
