Berries are the best in the summer months – the kids and I have loved going to local farms to pick both blueberries and strawberries this year. There are few things more delicious than a perfectly ripe summer berry.  I also love a cocktail this time of year! I decided to combine the two and create a festive, delicious, and fun Summer Berry Mojito Bar. Many of us are entertaining close friends and family, in small groups, outdoors this summer, so having a cute bar cart set up with a signature cocktail is such a great way to make your time together feel like a party, even if it’s not!

This Berry Mojito Bar is fun because you can easily mix up either a delicious and refreshing mojito, or a virgin version for kids with the same cart. Just hold the booze for the under 21 set – and add extra berries and club soda! To set up the cart, I put a selection of berries and sprigs of mint in individual mason jars, and organized them next to cans of club soda, light rum, and cut up limes. Have some simple Syrup or cane sugar on hand as well. A mojito is guided by the mixture of rum, mint, and lime juice. The sweetness of the berries adds a nice remix and allows you to make this cocktail without any added sugar if you so desire! You also need a cocktail shaker for this bar and recipe!
