Add a twist of blueberry to your life with our fresh Blueberry Mojito recipe. Fresh mint, lime juice, simple syrup and blueberries combine with white rum for perfectly sippable cocktail!
Serve this blueberry rum cocktail with a bowl of fresh baked Blueberry Crisp or a cool Strawberry Blueberry Granola Parfait and use up all those extra summer blueberries. Or, make it a full meal on your Taco Tuesday with these mojitos, some Green Chicken Chile Casserole, a side of Instant Pot Cilantro Lime Rice, and a slice of Tres Leches Cake.
How to Make a Fresh Blueberry Mojito:
- Start by placing fresh blueberries, fresh mint leaves, and granulated sugar into a drink shaker.
- Next, use a muddler (or flat end of a wooden spoon) to crush the berries and bruise the mint. You want to release all those flavors into the drink.
- Add some ice, and pour in the rum, simple syrup, club soda, and fresh squeezed lime juice. Give the ingredients a good shake.
- Place a handful of ice to each glass and garnish them with more fresh mint and berries.
- Strain the blueberry mojitos into the prepared glasses and enjoy!
Blueberry Mojito Tips and Variations:
- When it comes to cocktails and drinks, I always recommend using the freshest ingredients. They result in the best tasting cocktails.
- Use a mason jar with a lid in place of the drink shaker if needed.
- For a twist on this drink, consider using basil and lemon juice in place of the mint and lime juice.
- We love fresh blueberries in this drink. However, blueberries aren't always in season and sometimes that means they taste bitter. If this is the case, feel free to swap out the fresh blueberries and simple syrup with a blueberry simple syrup instead.
- Try vodka or gin in place of rum. Even a flavored vodka would taste great!
- Seltzer water or tonic may be used in place of club soda. Sprite or 7-Up are other great options. Although, lemon-lime flavored sodas will alter the flavor of the mojitos a bit.
- This blueberry mojito is on the sweeter side. If you’d prefer a less sweet drink, use less simple syrup and more club soda.
Storage: Enjoy these blueberry mojitos immediately after preparation. If you need to store it in the refrigerator, we recommend that you store it for 15-30 minutes maximum. Otherwise, the mint begins to wilt.
