HAPPY HOUR – RASPBERRY MOJITO

Somehow I cannot get enough of eating raspberries. Especially since I live in the U.K. – they are just incredible here. So any excuse is good and this Raspberry Mojito is another one I found last week. As if I needed this excuse!

This cocktail is delicious. Sweet and sour ­– like a traditional Mojito but with a little bit more body and a lovely combination of colours and texture, which I think adds to the taste.

With a muddler, crush well together the raspberries, the mint leaves, the sugar and the lime juice. Pour in to a short glass filled halfway with crushed ice. Add the white rum and extra whole raspberries and stir gently. Garnish with the mint spring and lime slice, serve straight away and enjoy!
