I mean, who doesn't love a delicious mojito, but adding strawberries and raspberries ups the antioxidant quota and gives it a fresh spin.
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup water
2 handfuls fresh mint leaves, washed
6 ice cubes
1 pound fresh organic strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
1 pint raspberries
Juice of 2 limes
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
- To make your simple syrup: combine honey, water and 1 handful of mint leaves in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until the honey is completely dissolved into the water. Remove from the heat, remove the mint leaves, and let cool for up to 30 minutes.
- Place 1/2 of the strawberries, 1/2 of the raspberries along with the lime juice, simple syrup and ice. Blend until smooth.
- Pour into a tall glass until half full. Add sparkling water and remaining raspberries, strawberries and mint leaves. Garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary.
*P.S. You can make it real cocktail by adding an ounce of rum to each glass ;)
