This Black Mojito Mocktail is one of my favorite refreshing and low sugar mocktails.
It is made with freshly muddled blackberries, mint, soda water, lime and a touch of simple syrup.
The fresh blackberries give this a pop of black color along with a purple hue from the muddled berries, making this a perfect moody and sultry mocktail.
Over The Spoon for:
A low sugar mocktail
An easy and refreshing drink
A great recipe for fresh blackberries
What do you need to make a Black Mojito Mocktail:
Fresh blackberries - you could use thawed frozen blackberries (or raspberries)
Fresh mint - you need to use fresh
Lime - fresh lime is best but you could use lime juice
Lime Sparkling Water - or plain soda water
Simple Syrup - this is optional but adds a touch of sweet balance!
How to make a Black Mojito Mocktail:
Start by muddling blackberries in a wide glass.
Slap mint leaves between your hands to express the oils - trust me! - and lightly press the mint into the berries.
Squeeze lime juice and a touch of lime zest.
Pour in sparkling water and stir.
Add a touch of simple syrup to your desired sweetness.
Pour with a strainer into a glass and serve with fresh berries and mint garnish.
Making more than one mojito mocktail?
Simply double or triple this recipe in a pitcher. I recommend leaving out the simple syrup to allow each guest to add enough sweetness to each mocktail.
If you would like to add alcohol to your mocktail, add about 1 ounce of white rum to each drink for a more classic black mojito.
