I love raspberries.  They are one of those fruits that if you can get them when they are plump and juicy they are simply amazing and I could eat them by the handful.  The problem with raspberries is that they are expensive.   I’m talking 4 or 5 dollars for four to six ounces which is just way too much.

So when I saw that raspberries were buy one get one free and they were on sale for three dollars I grabbed two pints.  I couldn’t wait to get them home.   Once home I promptly washed one pint and put them in with my fruit salad and I saved the other for baking and cooking.

That same day I happen to notice that while I didn’t have much planted yet in the yard, my mint was coming back from last year.  In fact, there were 6 fairly tall mint plants that were ready to use.   I grabbed a handful of leaves off the nearest plant and went back inside.

I don’t know about you but the first thing I think of when I grab fresh mint are mojitos.  When the sun is shining and fresh mint is around that is my go to drink.  While I love a classic mojito I think a refreshing twist is to use a second type of fruit along with the limes.

In this case I used the fresh raspberries.  I put raspberries and mint in the bottom of a glass and muddled them together.   Then I squeezed in the fresh lime juice and put the limes in the glass.   Then I filled it up with ice, added rum and simple syrup, and gave it a swirl.

The final step is adding bubbly water and mixing everything together.   I chose to add a wedge of lime, a whole raspberry, and a sprig of mint for garnish.  My raspberry mojito not only tasted great but it looks really pretty too!   I love the pink and green colors together.
