Raspberry Mojito Recipe in a Pitcher

Well, we just got back from Mexico and gosh was it a blast! We went to an all inclusive resort with a couple of friends to celebrate my husbands birthday. Theres’s nothing like chillin by the pool or beach, reading a book, relaxing with a refreshing drink in your hand. 

So, I’ve got funny story. One of the first times Mike and I went to an all inclusive resort we walked down to the pool after having breakfast, it was probably around 10am or so. I ordered a Mojito (cuz apparently when you’re on vacation you start drinking early… I don’t know why) but Mike ordered a Dirty Monkey. For those of you who don’t know, a Dirty Monkey has a base of banana and ice cream. Super heavy, especially if you’re sensitive to lactose (which he is)! He took a sip of his and then took a sip of mine and immediately switched, haha. There’s just sometime of starting off the day with a light cocktail versus one with an ice cream base. Am I right?

Anywho, one of my go to cocktails in the summer is a Mojito. It’s light refreshing, screams summer and doesn’t leave your tummy feeling bloated. 

What’s a Mojito?

Mojitos are my absolute favorite summer drink. It is a traditional Cuban drink traditionally made with white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and mint. It’s a combination of sweetness, citrus, and mint flavors intended to complement the rum – and it’s absolutely  delicious.

Can you make a mojito with Vodka?

Yes, you can absolutely make mojitos with Vodka. You’d just do a 1:1 swap with the rum. To enhance the “raspberry” flavor you could even do Raspberry Vodka.

How to make a Raspberry Mojito Mocktail?

  1. In a tall cup, add fresh raspberries, 4 wedges or slices of lime, and fresh mint. Muddle mixture with a muddler or just use the back of a spoon.
  2. Add more lime juice and agave nectar. Stir.
  3. Finish with ice cubes and soda water, stir and serve!

I seriously cannot wait for you guys to make this one. I’m so glad I asked you on Instagram, a couple weeks ago, what you’d prefer, because this was the outcome. A fresh fruity, limy refreshing mojito with a bright vibrant red color. Perfect for the 4th of July, if you’re into that whole “making things festive” thing!

But even if you’re not, this cocktail is absolutely perfect for the summer. I guarantee you’ll have “all the people” asking you for the recipe! Cheers friends!
