Arriba Mojitos! The refreshing flavour of the classic Mojito using the fruity aromas of Riesling makes this cool drink a hit! Prepared by Winexpert Burlington.
1 bottle of Riesling-type white wine
1 lemon, sliced
1 cup of blackberries, slighly squashed with a potato masher until they "pop"
1 litre of lemonade
1 cup sparkling soda water
1/4 cup brown sugar (for rimming glasses)
Rim 4 mason-jar style glasses and dip in brown sugar, set aside
In each jar, place 3 or 4 mint leaves in a glass alongside 1 slice of lemon and squish with a wooden spoon until the mint leaves have slighly 'broken apart', this will release their flavour. Repeat for all jars.
In a separate glass pitcher, combine all other ingredients and mix well with a wooden spoon. Serve immediately with some ice.
