Black currant mojito is abundantly fruity and slightly sparkling. The combination of blackcurrant jam, lemon, mint, Imperial sugar, and rum is sure to impress.
Black Currants from the gooseberry family grow on shrubs are commonly used to create jams, jellies, syrups and often paired with duck and pork. Black currants are small, dark black berries, with a concentrated flavor of raspberry, blackberry, and passionfruit.
For this cocktail I featured black currant jam to shake up my mojito. Fresh black currants are not readily available in South Texas, but I easily found the jam at my local grocery store. Muddle with fresh lemon juice and fresh mint, enhance the flavor of the black currants.
Today we are pairing black currants with rum for a fresh twist on the classic mojito.
Let’s get shaking!
