What better way than to celebrate summer than with a Frozen Blackberry Mojito.
I am still getting a bowl full of Blackberries out of the garden a a day. I have been enjoying them in my oatmeal and yogurt. I even made a Blackberry Pocket Pies, which are individual hand pies. A great summer treat. Now I have outdone myself with this dangerously easy and enjoyable cocktail the Frozen Blackberry Mojito. I used my own Blackberries, but a bag of frozen organic berries would work perfectly well here. Be forewarned, this disappears rather quickly and is easy to refill. BURP!
