Blackberries have always been a favorite of mine, both for eating as a delicious snack and for adding to my favorite treats. Blackberries grow and ripen from late spring to early Fall but their peak season in the United States runs from July to August.
Blackberries are a very easy fruit to grow and plentiful to harvest once you find a decent thicket in the wild. Once this berry is ripe, either in the garden or the forest, get ready for an abundant harvest! You are sure to have plenty for making blackberry recipes all summer long.
How to make the best mojitos?
The best mojitos start with the best white rum, period. Be sure to avoid flavored rums so as not to overpower the fresh mint leaves, you are going to need these for the refreshing qualities of the drink.
Always use the freshest ingredients because you are sure to be able to tell the difference when you are enjoying them. Always chop or muddle your mint leaves well to get the right amount of mint in your drink and don’t forget to serve this cocktail cold with lots and lots of ice.
