Blueberry Mojito

Kristin | June 15, 2016

Summer officially begins next week (yay!). Looking for a drink to make on the longest day of the year? You should definitely give this blueberry mojito a try. The blueberries and lemonade add a fresh twist to the classic mojito, and this version is just as good without the rum.

What makes this drink even better is the presentation. Serve it up in a clear glass, to showcase the muddled California Giant blueberries and mint. Top it off with a big sprig of mint, sliced limes, and a handful of our gorgeous blueberries.

Ingredients

1 cup fresh mint leaves

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 teaspoon sugar

4 tablespoons fresh California Giant blueberries (plus more for garnish)

½ to ¾ cup lemonade

Splash of club soda

1 ounce light rum

½ ounce dark rum

Mint sprig for garnish

Lime slice for garnish

Instructions

In a tall 16-ounce glass, add mint leaves, lime juice and sugar.

Mash the ingredients with the back of a spoon or a “muddler” until fragrant.

Add 2 tablespoons of the blueberries and mash until juicy.

Fill the glass three-quarters with ice.

Add lemonade until the glass is two-thirds full.

Add splash of soda, light rum and remaining blueberries, stir.

Slowly pour dark rum into the drink so it floats on top.

Garnish with a sprig of mint, slice of lime, and a handful of blueberries. 

Serve immediately and enjoy!
