From the Archives: Blueberry Mojitos

I'm currently unavailable to post, so I thought we'd revisit a few posts of mine from the Elle Sees archives. Enjoy!
PS--ENTER THE JEWELRY GIVEAWAY!
Earlier I posted my recipe for BBQ and thought I'd throw in a drink perfect for this weekend and upcoming summer. I'm not a regular Mojito fan, but this twist with the fruit makes it delicious! It's festive (see the American flag colors?), fruity, and refreshing. And easy to make! Enjoy!

Blueberry Mojito 

Ingredients:
- 1 1/2 oz light rum
- 1/4 oz fresh lime juice
- 8 mint leaves
- 8 fresh blueberries
- 1 tsp sugar
- Club soda
Garnish: lime slice and mint sprig

Muddle mint leaves with sugar in a mixing glass. Add light rum, lime juice to shake with ice. Pour into a tall glass. Drop blueberries and club soda. Garnish with lime slice and mint sprig. 



Virgin: Leave out the rum and mix with Sprite/7Up/Sierra Mist to make it non-alc.

  1. I love mojitos - they are one of my fave cocktails because they aren't too sweet - would be delicious with blueberries!
