This delicious summer drink, with the added flavor of raspberries, puts a fun and fruity spin on your traditional mojito.
Place 1 cup of raspberries and 1/2 cup of sugar into a small sauce pan.
Heat on medium until simmering, simmer for 5 minutes. Then set aside to cool.
Once cooled, strain raspberry seeds out of the syrup. Syrup is ready to use.
Muddle 5 mint leaves in the bottom of a glass. Be sure not to over muddle, only crush the mint enough to release the aromatic flavors of the mint.
Add 1 Tablespoon of Raspberry syrup, rum and lime juice to the mint. Stir until combined, allowing the mint flavor to infuse the drink.
Add ice to the glass. Pour club soda over the drink until the glass is full. (no required amount)
Add a few mint leaves and two raspberries as garnish. Enjoy!
