Signature Cocktail Friday ~ Strawberry Mango Mojito


1 tablespoon brown sugar
4 medium strawberries, hulled and diced
1/4 cup mint leaves, ripped
4 ounces mango rum
7.5 ounces Sprite

Using a mortar and pestle (or a bowl and spoon), mash together the strawberries, sugar, and mint.

Let sit for 5-10 minutes so the strawberries release juice.

Divide this mixture into two rocks glasses. Divide the rum and sprite between the glasses. Stir and add ice.

Friday Signature Cocktail Day ~ Blackberry Mint Margarita

Tomorrow, is a special day.

It is not often that the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo share the same day!

We know I love a good Signature Cocktail… so I had to find a drink that married Mint and Margarita, to honor both!

Presenting: The Blackberry Mint Margarita!!

8 blackberries, 2 skewered on a pick
10 mint leaves
1 1/2 oz tequila
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz simple syrup

Muddle six of the blackberries in a cocktail shaker.

Add the ice, mint, tequila, lime juice and simple syrup.  Shake well.  Fill a rocks glass with ice cubes.  Strain the drink into the glass.  Or, if you don’t mind it a bit “chunky” just pour it in.  Top with the berries skewered on the pick.  Toast the one you love and enjoy.
