This is Mojito Monday, but not like the usual Mojito Monday where a mojito is REALLY needed after a long, grueling day at work. This Mojito Monday is here ONLY because I had fresh raspberries that I had to use before they went bad. So, tonight I will enjoy my mojito while watching The Voice, and writing. Can’t think of a nicer way to spend the evening.
Fresh Raspberry Mojito
1/4 cup Raspberries (about 10)
1 lime, cut in quarters
1 tbsp powdered sugar
1-2 ounces of rum
Use a mortar and pestle or muddler to muddle together the raspberries, lime and powdered sugar. Strain the juice from the seeds into a tall glass. (I keep my seeds for my morning smoothie). Add ice, then rum. Fill the glass with sparkling water. Enjoy.
