Blueberries. Fresh, juicy and sweet, this weekend became an exploration in Berry possibility. Because summer cocktails are always a treat, I decided to play around with a Blueberry Mojito. I love the brillant berry color created by muddling the blueberries. Their sweet flavor, plus the fresh mint, made the perfect drink for a warm summer day.
- In a cocktail shaker, muddle the blueberries, mint leaves and sugar with a dash of club soda.
- Allow to sit for about 5 minutes, until the mixture has a nice berry color.
- Add in ice, rum and lime juice, shake well.
- Strain into a glass (ice optional), top with additional club soda and garnish with blueberries and mint.
