Summer is the best time to try out some new drink recipes. I’ve been spending sometime searching for some new favourites. Right now I am hooked on blueberries so when I found this Blueberry Mojito recipe I had to try it out.
1 cup fresh blueberries (extra for garnish)
4 oz white rum
10 fresh mint leaves
2 teaspoons sugar
6 oz club soda
- In a food processor or blender, puree blueberries until smooth. Set aside.
- Add mint leaves and sugar to a cocktail shaker. Use a muddler (or the end of a wooden spoon) to muddle the mint and sugar. Add the lime juice, rum and pureed blueberries: shake vigorously.
- Pour ice and club soda(I used lime flavoured club soda) into two tall glasses and then pour in rum mixture. Gently stir. Garnish with a lime wedge, extra blueberries and a sprig of mint. Serve immediately.

Not as pretty as the original but still super delicious!
