The instruction how to make Mixed berry cocktail with ginger syrup, mint and dark rum

  1. To prepare the syrup: In a medium heavy based saucepan, combine the water, sugar, ginger, lemon peel and juice, and salt. Bring to the boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low-medium and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the syrup thickens slightly and is infused with the ginger and lemon. Set the syrup aside at room temperature until cool. Strain the syrup into a small bowl and discard the solids. The syrup can be covered and refrigerated for up to 1 week.
  2. To prepare the cocktail: In a blender, combine the berries, rum, and 1 cup of ginger syrup; reserve the remaining syrup for another use. Blend on high speed for 15 seconds, or until well blended.
  3. Fill a jug halfway with ice. Add the berry mixture and mint and stir well to allow some ice to melt into the berry mixture. Pour into 8 high ball cocktail glasses and serve immediately.
