Blackberry and Raspberry Rum Smash

This blackberry and raspberry rum smash is a delicious sweet cocktail made with berries and mint. This is a healthier rum smash with raspberries, blackberries, lemon juice and mint. This is a sugar syrup free cocktail sweetened with maple syrup.

Raspberry cocktails might be considered a girly cocktail. And, yes, it is. But, for you men I’ve added some butch blackberries. It’s sweetened only with the fruit itself and a little maple syrup. Along with a handful of mint it is a healthier version of a rum smash. Strain out the seeds if you want a more decadent blackberry and raspberry rum smash, but I quite like the rustic version and assume optimistically the tiny seeds have beneficial properties to them. This couldn’t be a more easy to make cocktail, simply whizz everything together in a blender! That’s it. Because the raspberries are already frozen this delicious berry cocktail will be cold without all the cocktail shakery makery. That’s more time for cozying up with your loved one.

    This sounds delicious! I’m a huge fan of rum, I’m usually a spiced rum fan, but this has plenty of fruit in to sway me! 🙂 x
