Recipe: Blackberry Mojito

We are often being told that the smartest way to food shop is to go local and seasonal. With blackberries being in season during autumn, why not try a fruity twist on a cocktail classic this October? Some supermarkets will try and charge you a bomb for nothing more than a handful of these berries, so scope out the frozen section of Lidl or some of the Curry Mile’s supermarkets for a cheaper option.

Ingredients:
makes one glass

– Half a lime, cut into wedges
– 5/6 mint leaves
– 1 and ½ tablespoons of sugar
– 5 blackberries
– 1 shot of white rum (or vodka)
– Sparkling water
– Ice

Method:

Firstly, fill a sandwich bag with ice cubes, seal and bash with a rolling pin until all the contents is crushed. Next, in a tall glass, mix the lime wedges, mint, sugar and blackberries with a wooden spoon until the sugar is no longer visible. Add a handful of the crushed ice and pour over a shot of rum or vodka. Finally, top with sparkling water and give it a stir—you could even add a whole sprig of mint and a few extra berries for garnish to impress your housemates. Or if you really want to go all out, invest in a pack of cocktail umbrellas and novelty straws!
