Last summer, we traveled to Boca Raton for a wedding. At the reception, they served mojitos and raspberry mojitos, and I've been thinking about those drinks ever since. They were without question some of the best drinks I've ever had. Every ingredient was so increcibly fresh. Fresh lime juice, raspberries, cane sugar, the whole deal.
Unfortunately, my own version of raspberry mojitos didn't really come close to the ones we drank in Florida, but they were still quite delicious. Without pure sugar cane I think it is hard to achieve the same flavor, but my neighbor and I both really enjoyed drinking them with plain old granulated sugar. The raspberries gave the drinks not only a great flavor, but a pretty pink color as well! I'll definitely be keeping a lookout for sugar cane though so I can make authentic mojitos!
