Skinny Blackberry Mojitos

Mojitos are an incredibly refreshing drink. Especially in the summer time, the fresh mint and blackberries are always available, giving this drink a wonderfully sweet and refreshing taste. I picked up some blackberries from the local street fair that happens every Tuesday night in Huntington Beach, and kept the recipe skinny by just adding a tablespoon of agave, and wow, it was great. Make it as strong or as fruity as you like it, just don’t forget to garnish!
