Preparation

Step 1

In the bottom of your drinking glass, muddle/crush together blackberries, mint leaves, sugar or simple syrup, rum, and lime juice.

Add some ice cubes, then pour in club soda and stir. Garnish with a few whole blackberries and a sprig of mint.

Enjoy immediately.

The amount of sugar you use depends on how sweet you like your mojitos. I like mine sweeter so I used 2 tablespoons in mine, but Dan likes his a little more tart so I only put about 1 1/2 tablespoons in his.

Alternatively, you can use simple syrup, which will give you a more concentrated and uniform sweet flavor. I've been using that in all my cocktails lately and I think they are even more delicious this way. Just bring 1/2 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a simmer over medium-high heat, until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow syrup to cool, and then measure out however much you want to use for your drink. I suggest starting with 1/2 to 1 ounce per drink and going from there.
