Blackberry Mojitos

It's that time of year again!  Time to make fruity, frothy, rum and vodka filled cocktails and enjoy them in the sun! 

YieldApprox 4 cocktails, multiply for a large pitcher

1 8 ounce package fresh blackberries (reserve a few for garnish)
10-12 fresh mint leaves (reserve a few for garnish)
6 ounces dark rum
4 tbsp white sugar
1/2 cup lime juice

3 cups club soda, sparkling water, or lime flavored soda
1-2 fresh limes, quartered

In the bottom of a glass or pitcher, muddle the blackberries, mint leaves, sugar, rum and lime juice.

Add ice cubes, then top off with club soda or other sparkling beverage.  Garnish with a few whole blackberries, a sprig of mint, and a lime wedge.  Cheers!
