I had a friend who went to Cuba, and when he got back, he threw a party and made everyone mojitos to celebrate! It was the first time I'd ever tried one and I loved the fresh mint and lime flavor. It tasted light, bright, and summery.
So check out this blueberry mojito recipe we're sharing. It's still got all the zestiness of a traditional mojito, with a lot more bold fruit. And doesn't the blueberry color look so vibrant? Wouldn't your guests love sipping on one of these on a hot summer night?
Blueberry Mojito RecipeIngredients:
- Fresh mint
- Blueberry Vodka
- Sparkling water or Sprite
- Wild blueberries (I like the frozen wild blueberries)
- Crushed ice
Place 4-6 mint leaves and 3-4 lime quarters in the bottom of the mason jar glass. Using a cocktail muddler press down on the mint and limes to release the lime juice.
Add a scoop of crushed ice.
Depending on the size of your mason jar, add 1-2 oz of blueberry vodka.
Add 1⁄8 - 1⁄4 cup crushed wild blueberries.
Add another scoop of crushed ice.
Top the mojito with sparkling water or Sprite. The Sprite makes the mojito sweeter (this is how I love it!). If using the sparkling water make sure to add 2-3 teaspoons of sugar and stir to combine.
The mint and blueberries together are such a refreshing summer cocktail!
