Raspberry Mojito
Ingredients
1
cup fresh or frozen raspberries
 
Sugar
1
lime wedge
1/3
cup lightly packed fresh mint leaves, coarsely snipped
 
Ice cubes
1/4
cup light-color rum (2 ounces)
2/3
cup carbonated water, chilled
 
Fresh mint sprigs (optional)
Directions
  1. Thaw raspberries, if frozen; do not drain. Place sugar in a shallow bowl. Rub lime wedge around the rims of two 6- to 8-ounce cocktail glasses. Dip rims into sugar to coat; set aside.
  2. If desired, set aside several raspberries for garnish. Place the remaining raspberries in a food processor or blender. Cover and process or blend until smooth. Strain berries through a fine-mesh sieve; discard seeds. Set aside.
  3. Divide the snipped mint between the prepared cocktail glasses. Fill glasses three-fourths full with ice cubes. In a cocktail shaker, combine rum and the strained raspberries. Add ice cubes to fill shaker almost full; shake until very cold. Strain into the ice-filled glasses.
  4. Slowly pour carbonated water into glasses. If desired, garnish with reserved raspberries and mint sprigs.
