Raspberry Mojito Recipe

More often than not, we find ourselves preparing a raspberry cocktail in the summertime rather than other fruity cocktails.

That’s mostly because of raspberry’s delicious sweet sourness – it just tastes like summer.

And while we do have served up other summer cocktails here on the blog, such as this cucumber mojito or strawberry mojito, this was the very first time we tried a raspberry mojito – and we loved it!

The fresh sweetness with tartness undertone of the raspberry, combined with mint and club soda, makes this cocktail genuinely awesome!

Tips for a Delicious Raspberry Mojito

  • When muddling, add the mint leaves at the bottom, then add the lime wedges, pulp up. This way, both the mint and the lime skin won’t get beaten up too severely, becoming bitter.
  • Cut the lime lengthwise and remove the pith to avoid making it bitter.
  • It’s fine to use frozen raspberry. Simply remove it from the freezer 30 minutes before making your cocktail.
  • Note that raspberries have lots of little seeds. If it bothers you, press the raspberries through a fine-meshed sieve and only use the juice in your drink.

  • Club soda – To give that refreshing final touch.
  • Sugar – For this recipe, you can substitute for light brown sugar.
