Valentine’s Day is just days away. You might have big intentions for your sweetie, you might be keeping it low key, or perhaps you have a big Gal-entine’s Day celebration on the horizon. No matter how your Valentine’s Day works out, we have a great little cocktail to share with you — The Raspberry Mojito. This cocktail hits all of The Blind Pig’s major requirements. It’s easy to make. It’s very tasty, and the raspberries and mint give it a punch of fresh.
We start with easy ingredients which are on hand in most liquor and grocery stores this time of year. You will need a package of fresh raspberries, mint leaves, lime juice, cocktail-ready agave nectar, white rum, and Prosecco. Strawberries are usually a popular berry around Valentine’s Day. However, we liked that the raspberries still give the drink a pretty pinkish color, but were a little different than the traditional fare. The Prosecco gives it a touch of romance. Guys, this is a great way to have a little bubbly, but show you made some extra effort to make a cocktail special for your sweetheart. Wink. Wink.
Place 6 ounces of raspberries in the bottom of a shaker and muddle along with the lime juice, agave nectar, and mint leaves. Double strain into a wine glass. Pour rum into the glass. Top off with Prosecco and add ice. Garnish with a stem of mint leaves and several raspberries. What a lovely drink.
How will show your love or friendship this Valentine’s Day? We’d love to hear about it.
