Now, add your granulated sugar. Now you’ll need to muddle your raspberry mojito by using a muddler and gently pressing down and twisting, so the oils and flavors are released.

Once muddled, it’s time to add ice cubes, a good handful of ice will be good.

Next, add your rum and fresh lime juice. Top up your cocktail with club soda water.

Stir and garnish with a fresh mint sprig, add a straw and serve to your friends.

Refreshing raspberry mojitos – cheers!
