The citrus lime and blackberry combo combined with the herbaceous mint flavors make this blackberry mojito mocktail so refreshing for any occasion. This mocktail uses raw honey in place of processed sugar which makes this drink refined sugar free. My blackberry mojito mocktail only uses 4 ingredients making it super simple to make!
Blackberry Mojito Mocktail Ingredients:
Blackberries- The sweet yet slightly tart taste from blackberries add the perfect kick. Although blackberries are typically in season June- August, I have made this recipe with blackberries in the winter and it was still good. If you are eating the blackberries out of season and find that they are super tart, you may want to add a little more honey.
Lime-The lime compliments the mint and blackberries so nicely. I did make the lime optional because the drink tastes delicious without it, but it tastes even better with it!
Mint-The mint is what makes this drink! Do not substitute.
Honey-I use honey as a natural sweetener in all of my drinks. It is the perfect alternative to processed sugar. It keeps the drink light without a sugar hangover the following day! Honey can be expensive, especially if you like the good quality honeys that are not mixed with anything else like I do. I have found that the large gallons of honey Costco sells does the trick and it is only a fraction of the cost of a jar of honey from Whole Foods, and it lasts longer. This is especially great if you plan on serving and making a lot of mocktail/ cocktail drinks at home.
Club soda/ filtered water-Use club soda vs tonic water, tonic water has sugar in it and this drink is already sweet enough!
Equipment And Making The Drink:
I like using a large saucepan. The most important part of this step is having a colander to then drain the syrup with over a bowl. I like using a bowl with a lip because it makes it easier to then pour the syrup into a mason jar.
Be sure to mix the drink with ice right before you want to drink it or the mocktail could get watery.
I love drinking all of my drinks in fun cocktail glasses. It makes it so much more fun to drink. Do not forget about the garnishes! Mint or edible flowers go great with this recipe to garnish.
Storing The Syrup:
This recipe makes enough syrup for about 10 drinks. You can store the syrup in an airtight mason jar for up to 2 weeks in the fridge. Be sure to label it with the date and what it is.
