Makes 8 12-ounce drinks
At the height of summer, when the blackberries are bursting with sweetness, this is the summer cocktail you'll want to make.
1 1/2 cups D'Aristi Blanco Rum
1/2 cup Vanilla Rum
1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
1 cup simple syrup
1 pound fresh blackberries
Fresh mint sprigs
Pour the two rums, lime juice and simple syrup into a large pitcher and stir to blend.
In a 12 ounce glass, add 10 mint leaves and about 1/4 cup blackberries. Using a muddler, crush the mint and berries. Pour 4 ounces of the rum mixture into the glass. Add a splash of sparkling water and stir. Fill the glass with ice cubes. Prepare the remaining drinks in the same manner.
