Easy Blueberry Mojitos

I’m calling this blueberry mojito recipe the perfect summer cocktail! We already love classic mojitos, but in this recipe, we’ll add delicious blueberries to the mix to make it even more summer friendly!

Summer cocktails don’t get much prettier than this one. Find the recipe below as well as an extra tip for making blueberry mojitos for a crowd. For more summery drinks, see our fruity red sangria, this rosemary gin fizz, and this bubbly Aperol spritz.

Key Ingredients

  • Rum: I use white rum to make mojitos because it’s lighter and crisp, and the color shows off what else is in the glass (like the green mint and blueberries). You can use any white rum you enjoy. I’d just skip the overproof rums (like higher-proof 151 and the like). The rum you use doesn’t need to break the bank. A good quality, reasonably priced white rum will do the trick.
  • Blueberries: Use fresh or frozen blueberries to make blueberry mojitos! If you use frozen, thaw them first so you can muddle them with the mint. Blueberries are lovely in this cocktail, but if you have other berries on hand, use them. Raspberries, strawberries, and even blackberries are all amazing.
  • Fresh Mint and Lime: Fresh ingredients make the best mojitos. I muddle my mint and lime juice for the cocktail and then garnish the glass with more mint and a lime slice. To try something a little different, try basil! It’s tasty, muddled into a berry mojito (especially strawberry mojitos).
  • Sugar: I use plain granulated sugar, but you can use simple syrup. Here’s my homemade simple syrup recipe.
  • Club Soda: I love club soda when making cocktails since it has a bit of salt added, which makes the cocktail taste even better. Sparkling water or seltzer water will work, too, but they often don’t have the added salt/minerals.

Blueberry mojitos are super simple to make and only require a few simple, fresh ingredients. Thawed frozen berries work really well as a substitute if you cannot find fresh, sweet blueberries.

Makes 1 drink

You Will Need

2 ounces (1/4 cup) white rum

8 blueberries, plus more for serving

1 ounce (2 tablespoons) fresh lime juice

2 teaspoons sugar

8 fresh mint leaves, plus more for serving

1 ounce (2 tablespoons) club soda

Lime slices for serving

Directions

    1Add the blueberries, lime juice, sugar, and mint leaves to a cocktail shaker.

    2Use the end of a wooden spoon or cocktail muddler to bash (or muddle) the mint into the lime juice and sugar. This releases the mint’s oils, breaks up the blueberries, and helps the sugar dissolve into the lime juice.

    3Add the rum, stir well, and then pour into a glass filled with ice, leaving about an inch of room.

    4Top with the club soda.

    5Serve with extra blueberries, mint leaves, and a lime slice.

Adam and Joanne's Tips

  • Blueberry mojitos for a crowd: To make enough for 4 people use these amounts: 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, 3 tablespoons sugar, 32 fresh mint leaves, plus more for garnish, 1 cup white rum, 4 cups ice, 1/2 cup club soda, and 4 lime slices for garnish. Muddle in a pitcher, add the rum and divide between 4 ice-filled glasses. Top each mojito with club soda.

    This is a fabulous recipe. I doubled the 4 serving recipe and made a pitcher. Altered the recipe only using two less spoonfuls of sugar. So for 8 glasses I used 1 cup blueberries, 1 cup fresh lime juice, 32 mint leaves, 4 spoons of sugar and 2 1/2 cups white rum. I quickly pulsed all ingredients minus the rum in the blender. Added rum, ice and soda water at the end. It was a party pleaser. Thank you!! Will make again.

    I am a Mojito fanatic and this recipe is spot-on! Perfect amount of ingredients and is as good (if not better) like the bars/restaurants! I did sub the sugar out with two packs of Splenda which worked out perfectly for me!

    Just gave these a try without the rum (preggo here) and extra club soda… very refreshing drink for the summer. Can’t wait to try it with the rum in a few months! Thanks for the recipe.
