Mojito is one of my favorite summer drink’s. Blueberries are also a fantastic summer fruit and what better way than to combined the two in a delicious drink!
(For 2 mojitos)
1 cup fresh blueberries, plus extra for garnish
4 oz clear rum
10 fresh mint leaves
2 teaspoons sugar
juice of 2 limes
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 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.
