Smoking Blackberry Mojito Mocktail
Posted on September 25, 2019
Perfect for Halloween!!
This may be my favorite drink ever, guys!
First of all, a warning. Don’t touch the dry ice. I know, I know, it seems self explanatory, but I’m telling you, it really will hurt!! Don’t touch it. Use tongs.
Okay. So I have a thing about drinks. Everywhere you go to dinner, or maybe to the beach, or anyplace where they are serving drinks, you see grown ups standing around with these pretty drinks with fruit and beautiful colors served in fancy glasses. And what about the kids… what do we get? We get apple juice in a plastic cup with a lid.
No way! I think we deserve cool, pretty drinks, too!
So here it is… my sassy answer to your Halloween party: the Smoking Blackberry Mojito Mocktail.
Check out the video on how to make these babies on YouTube!!
- 1/2 Cup Simple Syrup
- 4 Mint Leaves, plus extra for garnish
- 1/4 Cup Fresh Blackberries, plus extra for garnish
- 1/4 Cup Tbsp Lime Juice
- 4 Cups Sparkling Water (I use Blackberry or Raspberry Flavor if I can)
- 8 Tbsp Dry Ice, Broken Up
For 4 Servings: Make blackberry simple syrup by muddling (mashing) blackberries, simple syrup, and mint leaves in a small bowl. Strain.
Pour 2 Tbsp Blackberry Simple Syrup into each glass. Add 2 Tbsp Lime Juice. Stir.
Slide a couple of blackberries and a mint leaf into each glass for garnish, then CAREFULLY drop a few pieces of dry ice into each glass. USE TONGS.
Watch as the glass comes alive with amazing bubbles and smoke!!
