Trader Joe’s Blackberry Spritzer Mojito Recipe

So, you’ve recently acquired Trader Joe’s Blackberry Spritzer.  Perhaps you too found it a bit plain.  Sweeter than seltzer but not sweet enough to be soda.  Why not jazz it up a bit?  Below is Trader Joe’s Blackberry Spritzer Mojito recipe:Trader Joe's Blackberry Spritzer Mojito

You also realized Trader Joe’s Blackberry Spritzer is not the most flavorful thing Trader Joe’s makes.  It’s light and refreshing, but it’s color leads you to believe it’s going to have a lot more taste going on.  So you could 1) drink it as is 2) dump it or 3) Make an alcoholic beverage which already has a lot of flavor to it.

My review said it reminded me of summer.  I know it’s December, but I’m longing for summer right now.  So I made the most summery drink I could think of.  It was tasty, well balanced, and the blackberry spritzer worked perfectly with it.  This makes 1 glass of Mojito.  Trader Joe's Blackberry Spritzer Mojito
