An easy and refreshing recipe for blueberry mojitos with fresh blueberries, mint and lime. Feel free to use fresh or frozen and thawed blueberries for this, both work like a charm.
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 then pour into a glass filled with ice, leaving about an inch of room then top with club soda. Garnish with extra blueberries, mint leaves and a lime slice.
