Berry mojito

A summer recipe from Green Cooks

Limes, berry and mint are a delicious combo – enough said.

Ingredients (makes 1 litre, serves 3-4)

  • Juice of two limes
  • 4 tbsp sweetener (honey, sugar syrup, agave)
  • Large splash of rum extract (or non-alcoholic rum)
  • 2 large handfuls of fresh or frozen berries
  • 4 cups (1 litre) cold sparkling or tonic water
  • 2 large handfuls of fresh mint 
leaves, chopped

To serve

  • Handful of crushed ice
  • Lime wedges
  • Extra berries


In a food processor or blender, add lime juice, sweetener, rum extract, berries and ¼ cup of water. Blend until combined. Pour through a strainer to remove pulp and press juice out with a spoon.

In a jug, add mint leaves and muddle with a cocktail muddler (or the back of a rolling pin) to bruise the mint and release flavour. Add a handful of crushed ice, fresh berries, lime wedges and berry juice. Top with cold sparkling or tonic water. Stir to combine.
