This Blackberry Fauxjito is a refreshing non-alcoholic version of the oh so popular mojito. Blackberries, honey & mint make for a tasty mixed mocktail.
Here we are – Mocktail Monday again. This will be the last in the series (for now). I have some fun new ideas I want to bring to you through the summer & there are only so many days in a week to fit it all in. I will still bring you mocktails & of course mix in some regular cocktail recipes too for all of you who have been missing those with this non-alcoholic series. But all those great beverage recipes will be sprinkled throughout until fall.
Since I am bringing the actual series to a close I thought I would end with a non-alcoholic version of the very popular mojito. I have not shared a fauxjito with you in quite a long while & this one seemed like the perfect one this time. Blackberries are the all time favorite in this house & it’s that time of year to enjoy!!
Blackberry Fauxjito : Mocktail Monday
