Berry Delicious Mojito

-A Little History-    mo·ji·to  (m-ht)
n. pl. mo·ji·tos
An alcoholic drink made of rum, sugar, lime juice, crushed mint leaves, soda water, and shaved ice.

[Cuban Spanish, from Spanish mojosauce (often containing lime juice in Cuba), from mojar, to moisten, from Vulgar Latin *mollireto soften by wetting; see moil.]

- THE IDEA- I was a the Gulfstream Park and Casino a few weeks back and came across a mojito that was so good I had to pick the bartenders brain about how she had made it.  Its actually quit simple and takes no time at all.  The recipe that I am going to give you makes three gallons of mojito and takes a full handle of Jamaican Rum.  I had taken this Idea and made it for a pool party and everyone was ecstatic about it, "It tastes so good there can't be alcochol in it? Can there?" Well try it out and tell me what you think!!!!!! 

1.)  One Handle (1 litter) of your favorite Jamaican Rum (I chose Malibu mango for this specific drink)
2.) One Pint of Blackberry, raspberry, and blueberry (Strawberries are optional)
3.) 1/4 pound of fresh mint leaves
4.) 5 fresh limes (Juiced)
5.) 3/4 cup of sugar and a little extra for the rim of your glass

1.) Pour in your sugar, berries, and mint into a Iced Tea pitcher
2.) Add your lime Juice
3.) Smash lightly with a pestle or a large spoon, until its all one berry-minty mess
4.) Last add your RUM-Yummy and stir lightly for a minuet or so
5.) Dab your favorite glass with either water or a left-over lime and spin it in your sugar bowl
6.) Finally Pour and Serve over Ice and ENJOY!!!!!!!!
