You can use white granulated sugar if you prefer, but I love the deeper flavor of the brown sugar with the blackberries. The sugar grains help bring out all of the mint oils and lime flavor while muddling.
If you don't own a muddler, no worries. Neither do I. I use the end of a wooden spoon to do the trick.
The Bacardi rum blends with the mint, lime and blackberries to create a fruity mixture that is heavenly. The chilled club soda gives this rum cocktail the right amount of fizz. Served over ice, Blackberry Mojitos are a must-add to your summer mix.
