Fresh Blueberry Mojitos
Blueberry mojitos are simple to make and only require a few simple, fresh ingredients. If you cannot find fresh, sweet blueberries, thawed frozen berries work as a substitute.
Makes 1 drink
You Will Need
8 blueberries (fresh or frozen and thawed), plus more for serving
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) fresh squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons sugar 8 fresh mint leaves, plus more for serving
1/4 cup (2 ounces) white rum
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) club soda
Lime slice for serving
Add blueberries, lime juice, sugar and eight mint leaves to a cocktail shaker. Use the end of a wooden spoon or cocktail muddler to bash (or muddle) the mint into the lime juice and sugar. This releases oils from the mint, breaks up the blueberries and helps the sugar dissolve into the lime juice.
Add rum, stir well, and then pour into a glass filled with ice, leaving about an inch of room then top with club soda. Serve with extra blueberries, mint leaves, and a lime slice.
