Refreshing raspberry and mint are sure to make you smile!
There is nothing like a good, flavorful mojito. However, regular mojitos made with just mint can be a little boring. Why not liven it up with a little raspberry? Fruity raspberries and fresh, powerful mint are the perfect combination which makes this mojito one you are going to love.
Making a virgin raspberry mint mojito is actually very easy. It all starts by making a mint flavored syrup. A little sugar, a little water and some fresh, packed mint are boiled together and then strained, leaving behind a sweet, minty syrup. Really press the liquid out of the mint leaves so that all the juice comes out- that is where the flavor lives! Once cooled that flavor packed syrup is ready to use!

We like to mash the raspberries with brown sugar rather than white to give the drink a richer taste. You will notice that molasses sweetness when you take your first sip! The mashed berries and sugar is mixed with the mint syrup and then the whole drink is topped off with some bubbly seltzer. No alcohol needed in this drink! It is flavorful and drool-worth as is! Be sure to garnish your glass with a fresh raspberry or mint leaf to make it look like picture perfect.
