Modest Marce Mojitos
It has been a pleasure working with Marcella DiLonardo of Modest Marce, a gorgeous blog packed with recipes and inspiring photography.
We are honored that she has used our Shelter glasses many times….and wanted to share a few of her images with you.
Marcella shared her feeling about the glasses with us recently. "I absolutely love the glassware! The minimal shape & style mixed with the high quality of the hand blown glass.. I use them for all my cocktails!"
We also feel, once you get these glasses into your hands, it is hard to use anything else. We love how she uses the pitcher as a mixing vessel for cocktails.
Because it is getting warm out there…today we are sharing her Blackberry Mojito recipe with you!
- 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
- 1 Tbsp. fine sugar
- 8 fresh mint leaves
- 8 fresh blackberries
- 1/2 cup crushed ice
- 2 oz. white rum
- 2 oz. club soda
In a clear glass add the lime juice, sugar, mint & blackberries. Using a muddle, gently press down ensuring the blackberries are sufficiently muddled & the juices have been released.
Add ice, white rum & club soda.
Stir & garnish with fresh mint & a slice of lime.
