Fun Water Recipe: Blackberry Mint

Comments Off on Fun Water Recipe: Blackberry Mint

If you are like me and you crave mojitos in the summer time (well let’s be honest, all year round) then this recipe is for you. I wanted to recreate the mojito flavour for my fun water recipe this week and I must say, it turned out pretty darn great!

At first I was a little worried that because I am not using sparkling water or soda that it would taste too flat, but to my surprise it was super flavourful and tasted magnificent!

simply perfect water recipe with lots of flavour blackberry mint lime mix

Here is what you need: (per glass)

• one glass of water
• small handful of blackberries (about ten)
• three or four wedges of lime
• 5-10 mint leaves depending on taste

I placed the mint, lime and blackberries in my glass, grabbed a fork and muddled the berries and mint until the berries were almost all liquid. This step is key to releasing the flavours, however the blackberries have a lot of seeds, so if you do not want them in your drink I would suggest muddling the berries in a small hand strainer over your glass instead.

Once you have the three key ingredients, add your water, ice and style with a fancy straw to make it nice. (*side note: I used half a lime in my drink and found the lime flavour to be pretty powerful, I did still like it but would recommend just a few wedges instead)

Enjoy!

  • I started blogging four years ago and at the time felt super shy and embarrassed about what I was starting for myself AND NOW.... I am sitting at shopping centres early in the morning wearing rompers and heels laughing as people drive by and stare. ⠀

It's so freeing tossing that what if out of the way and just doing what you are feeling drawn to. Thanks to all of you for being here, it means SO MUCH to me!

  • When James and I first met (at a tight and bright birthday party) the first thing that I learnt about him was that he was a father. I’ve always known him as a dad and knew right away when I saw him interacting and parenting Ezra that he was marriage material. Love how he parents and fathers our children. Happy Father’s Day to this guy ☝🏻 love you babe! (Posting early cause I’m gonna try to stay off the phone tomorrow.. as a little Father’s Day gift) ☺️
