This Raspberry Mojito Cocktail may be the freshest drink I’ve ever had. Made with homemade simple syrup, fresh lime, mint and raspberries, it may truly be my summer go to cocktail!
Since I started Pour Me a Cocktail, I’ve been trying lots of new concoctions. Can I just say…Best. Job. Ever! I have a couple of mojitos before at restaurants, but wasn’t super impressed with them. So, I decided to try to make a mojito at home with super fresh ingredients, including my favorite Homemade Simple Syrup. I swear, the fresh ingredients make it taste so much better than store bought mixes! I had some raspberries that I had just bought sitting on the counter, and I decided to throw them into the mix. I’m not kidding when I say, this is the most delicious concoction I’ve ever had. The raspberries, mint, simple syrup and fresh lime juice muddled together make this drink so amazing! This is one of those drinks that takes a couple of minutes to put together, but is definitely worth it!
