What is a better way to kick off the warm weather than with a sparking lemon raspberry mojito. Made with sparkling coconut water, juicy red raspberries, zesty lemon juice, fresh mint, and sweet rum. This simple to make rum cocktail takes under 5 minutes to make and is the perfect balance between sweet and tart. Enjoy a fresh lemon raspberry mojito on your front porch while admiring the summer sunset.
Lemon Juice- You may also use fresh lemon juice
Sparkling Coconut Water– If you do not have sparkling coconut water, use ½ coconut water and ½ unflavored or lemon sparkling water in place of the sparkling coconut water. If you do not like the coconut taste, omit the coconut water entirely and use sparkling water in its place.
Rum– You can use dark rum, like I did, or you may use white rum. You may also used flavor rum but make sure the flavor mixes well with coconut, lemon and raspberry. Do not use spiced rum! It will not taste good.
Muddler– If you do not have a muddler, use the back of a wooden spoon, as I did in this recipe.
