Mixed Berry Mojitos

Mixed Berry Mojitos

Being that it’s the summer, there is nothing like a nice refreshing cocktail while you sit back and relax. I decided to grow a mint plant in my garden this year, in hopes that it would yield lots of mint, therefore allowing me to make lots of mojitos. Mojitos are one of my favorite cocktails, and I love being able to use fresh herbs while making them. I had lots of berries in the fridge over the weekend, so decided to make some easy Mixed Berry Mojitos.

I also love making mojitos because they are super easy, and a big crowd pleaser. You can essentially use any fruits you have around, which makes flavoring them fun and creative! I am super excited about my mint plant, because this means I can have fresh mojitos all summer! If you don’t have a mint plant, I highly recommend getting one. They are really easy to maintain and are super black thumb friendly (seriously).  I actually have so much mint, I am not sure what to do with all of it – mojitos for everyone I guess!
