Looking for a refreshing cocktail to serve this summer? Look no further! Make this Ginger Raspberry Mojito, made with a homemade honey ginger simple syrup.
It’s All About Presentation
We have hosted an event or two in our time and we have learned one main thing: presentation is everything! It doesn’t matter what you serve, how much it costs, or how much time you put into it.
Always serve your guests the most quality ingredients as you can find, but if you buy a veggie plate at target, put it on a white serving platter with a cute little serving dish with dip and you’re golden!
Same goes for drinks! If you are hosting a party, get out your best glassware and serve a simple chilled white wine or some fun bubbly water with fruit garnish! The more color, the better!
This ginger raspberry mojito is beautiful and perfect for your next gathering! First things, first! Let’s talk mojitos.
Mojitos remind me of a hot day and the beach. I love that a good mojito can turn a summer afternoon around with its delicious fresh flavors. A traditional mojito has five main ingredients:
- White Rum
- Lime juice
- Soda water
This ginger raspberry mojito is a fun twist on the classic mojito! It has fresh lime juice, grated ginger, white rum, club soda, pureed raspberries, and fresh mint leaves!
Before Making Mojitos
There are so many ways to make this cocktail your own! Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about these raspberry mojitos!
Frozen vs. Fresh Berries. Though fresh berries would be best for this cocktail, frozen berries would work too! All you have to do is remove the frozen raspberries from the freezer, let them thaw and then strain the access water from them before placing them in the blender!
How to make a large batch mojito. This ginger raspberry mojito is a great recipe for parties! We have made it at a Fit Foodie event before and people loved it! All you have to do is double, triple, or quadruple the recipe! It works like a dream!
Serve it in a big pitcher or a large mason jar drink dispenser!
Is there a difference between white rum and dark rum? The difference between white rum and dark rum is that dark rum is aged longer and usually in wooden barrels. You can use both in this recipe, but know that the dark rum is usually bolder in flavor!
How to Make a Ginger Raspberry Mojito
This ginger raspberry mojito recipe is fresh and flavorful.l I promise you will wow your guests if you take the time to make these!
We love naturally sweetening our cocktails and drinks with our honey simple syrup. It’ is super easy to make!
You bring 1 cup honey and 1 cup water to a boil and then let it simmer for about 10 minutes. That’s it! You let it cool and store it in your fridge for 2-3 weeks!
For this ginger raspberry mojito, you just add ginger to the pot when you boil the water and honey together. After you have let it simmer, run the simple syrup through a sieve so the ginger pieces are left behind and you’re all set!
Blend Those Raspberries
If you’re wondering how we got these mojitos so beautifully red, we actually pureed and strained the raspberries to give us an amazing base!
Place raspberries, lime juice, and ginger into a blender and blend until smooth! After that, run the whole raspberry mixture through a sieve and set aside!
Mix and Garnish
Finally, add simple syrup, blended raspberries, slapped mint and rum to a cocktail shaker with ice! Shake for 20-30 seconds.
Then, place ice into cocktail glasses and pour cocktail over ice. Top with soda water, garnish with mint, and ENJOY!
