Blackberry Mojito Cocktail

So far I’ve made blackberry ginger bars, sangria, and now these blackberry mojitos, and I’ve still got tons of blackberries to spare. I’m checking out a bunch of these recipes and trying to figure out what to make next, but in the meantime, I’ll be sipping on one of these refreshing cocktails.
