Lower Sugar Blackberry Mojito

Blackberry Mojito with KNOW Better Sweetener

Say cheers to summer with this lower-sugar version of a classic mojito. We've added color with a bit of fresh blackberry, and sweetened this rum-based drink with a mint simple syrup made from KNOW Better Sweetener. If you prefer traditional flavors, feel free to omit the blackberry. Our mojito may still contain some sugar from the rum, but we can promise this drink is lighter than what you'd find in a typical cocktail.

Makes 1 drink


Mint Simple Syrup
3/4 cup KNOW Better Sweetener
1/2 cup water
2 large mint sprigs

3/4 ounce Mint Simple Syrup (above)
2 mint sprigs, plus more for garnish
1 fresh blackberry, plus more for garnish (optional)
2 ounces white rum
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
Ice cubes
Club soda


To make the simple syrup: Combine all of the ingredients in a small saucepan. Place over medium heat and bring to a rapid simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and let cool. Once cool, discard the mint sprigs.

To make the cocktail: In a cocktail shaker, combine the simple syrup, mint sprigs, and the blackberry. Muddle until the blackberry has released its juices. Add the rum and lime juice. Fill with ice cubes and shake until well chilled.

Strain into a tall glass filled with ice. Top with club soda and garnish with additional mint and a blackberry. Serve immediately.
