Blackberry Basil Mojito (courtesy of the Minimalist Baker)

  • 1 Tbsp. cane sugar
  • 1/2 lime, quartered
  • 3 ripe blackberries, plus more for garnish
  • 6-7 basil leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 1.7 ounces white rum
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 1/4 cup soda water (aka club soda)

Add lime segments, blackberries, and sugar to a cocktail glass and gently muddle 7-8 times (use a muddler, or anything with a blunt edge, such as the handle end of a spatula). Add basil and gently muddle again 4-5 times to infuse flavor. Add white rum and gently stir/fold with a spoon to combine. Then add crushed ice, gently stir, and top with a splash of club soda. Gently stir/fold once more, then garnish with a bit more crushed ice and garnish with basil.
