Serves: 8-10
Ingredients
  • 1 2-liter bottle of Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale
  • 12 ounces fresh blackberries (save a few for garnish)
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar (or honey)
  • 1 bunch of fresh mint
  • 5 fresh limes
  • White rum
Instructions
  1. To make the blackberry puree, toss the blackberries and agave nectar into a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth, then strain using a fine mesh strainer. Set aside.
  2. Next, in a shaker glass, add 8-10 mint leaves and half a lime, cut into small wedges.
  3. Use a muddler to crush the limes and mint, this will help release the juices and oils from the mint and lime.
  4. Pour in 2½ ounces of white rum, and 1 ¼ ounces of blackberry puree into the shaker glass. Shake to combine.
  5. Pour the mixture into a highball glass, over ice (I use a 10 ounce glass).
  6. Top off the mojito with Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale.
