Makes 1 Cocktail
- 6 to 8 Blackberries
- 8 Mint Leaves
- 1 ounce Rum
( I used coconut rum, gotta use what ya got!)
- 1 Tablespoon Sugar
- Juice of half a lime
- A few ice cubes
- 2 to 3 ounces Club Soda
In a glass, combine the sugar and mint leaves. Using a muddler or a pestle, break down the mint into the sugar, releasing its oils and aroma. Add blackberries, rum, and lime juice and continue to muddle the ingredients together. ( I used the back of a spoon to smash the blackberries). Add a few ice cubes and top off with club soda. Garnish with extra blackberries and mint sprigs.
