It is sunny for the next two days in Portland so I am in the mood to celebrate spring. I found this raspberry mojito recipe on a' la carte kitchen and can't wait to give it a try! Enjoy!

Makes 1 serving
8 fresh mint leaves
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
2 ounces white rum
2-3 ounces seltzer
4-6 fresh raspberries
- Place mint leaves, lime juice and sugar in a highball glass (something tall and narrow is perfect). Using the straight end of a wooden spoon, gently press on leaves to release flavor (“muddle” is the official term).
- Fill glass with ice cubes. Pour in rum. Top off with seltzer. Drop in raspberries, and sip!
