And some fresh berries and herbs in a cocktail. Well, that's just downright amazing.
These particular mojitos were the ones that secured the fate of #MojitoMonday. What's not to love about the combination of tart lime, sweet blueberry, fresh mint and a little sugar? It's light, refreshing and slightly fizzy, just enough to tickle the tip of your nose when your indulging in it's gloriousness.
These mojitos are just as simple and come together just as quickly as the traditional ones, but have that awesome, sweet blueberry flavor in the mix.
So, instead of boring you with random facts about this cocktail I'll hush now so you can
Half lime, cut into quarters
12-14 Mint leaves, removed from stem and roughly torn
4 Tsp sugar
1/2 Cup fresh blueberries
3 Oz white rum
Divide lime, mint leaves, sugar and blueberries evenly between 2 glasses. Using a muddler, gently press to release the juices. Add the rum and stir to combine. Fill glasses with ice, the top off with soda. Stir, garnish with a lime if desired and enjoy.
