Make if Pink!
With just a couple of small changes to the recipe you can make a fantastic PINK Mojito too!
Just mix 6 mint leaves, the juice from half of the lime, 2 teaspoons of sugar syrup (or even some Agave Nectar) and 3 raspberries in tall glass. Add the ice then pour in a measure and a half of white rum, half a measure of Chambord - stir well, top with more crushed ice and cranberry juice and once again decorate with the left over mint!
