Blackberry Mojitos + Free Printable Stir Sticks!

Recipe for Blackberry Mojitos | Pizzazzerie.com

Summer in the south is full of one of my favorite flavors: blackberries! I recently styled an entire blackberry treat table that I look forward to sharing super soon but meanwhile, how about a blackberry mojito to save the day? I love the tartness of the lime with the sweet blackberries. It’s the perfect combo for a signature summer cocktail. Whether you serve these up at a wedding or enjoy one after a long work day, it’s oh-so-refreshing and sure to hit the spot.

I love adding a little pizzazz to drinks so these DIY Stir Sticks were a no brainer. Cute blackberry printable on a stir stick? Done! And because I love y’all oh so much, you can download your own to print and make. It couldn’t be easier and adds a charming little touch, don’t ya think? Simply cut and hot glue onto a skewer stick (tip: find long bamboo skewers in the grilling aisle). Download the file below…
