Frozen Berry Mojito

Nothing can beat the taste of a well made Classic Mojito, but during our recent trip to St. Maarten, we enjoyed a Wild Berry Mojito at Mary’s Boon that was totally different and really, really good! Turns out the bartender at Mary’s Boon won an award for the beverage but wouldn’t divulge the complete recipe. It was berrylicious and we could certainly taste a bit of lime and mint, but it was frozen – more like a daiquiri. When we returned home, we thought we would try to capture the flavors present in that scrumptious Wild Berry Mojito and searched for some berry mojito recipes.

We combined a few recipes and tweaked the ingredients to our liking and ended up with the following recipe, and although not quite as amazing as the one we had in St. Maarten, it’s pretty tasty! Perhaps the incredible view of Simpson Bay at Mary’s Boon has something to do with it?

Frozen Berry Mojito
(makes 1)

1 cup berries (we used blueberries and blackberries for the color)
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 tbsp. mint infused simple syrup (see recipe below)
2 oz. white rum

Combine all ingredients in a blender with 1 cup of ice. Blend until smooth and garnish with a sprig of mint.

Mint Infused Simple Syrup
Mix 1/2 cup water with 1/2 cup sugar in a saucepan and heat until the sugar dissolves. Then let it steep with a handful of mint leaves for an hour or so. Strain out the leaves and store in the fridge till you’re ready to use it.

Possible Variations
Change up the type of berries (strawberry, raspberry) to change the taste
Use frozen berries and slightly decrease the ice
Add more simple syrup if you like a sweeter drink or when using berries that are not as sweet
