Add a twist of blueberry to your life with our new blueberry mojitos recipe. Fresh mint, lime juice, and blueberries are a tasty combination!
As you may already know, we have quite a few cocktail and after-dinner drink recipes on our website.
Today, we’re adding another one. It’s our blueberry mojitos recipe. While it’s similar to a coconut rum mojito, there is one obvious difference.
Kim added fresh blueberries to this drink. The plump berries add an extra touch of sweetness and blend perfectly with the lime juice and rum.
If you’re looking for a new mojito to try, then I definitely recommend this one.
Of course, if you love this drink, then you’ll probably enjoy this blackberry mojito as well.
But, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. Perhaps we should just focus of getting this recipe done.
Speaking of which, let’s jump in the kitchen and start tending the bar!
How to make blueberry mojitos?
First, you’re going to need some sort of cocktail shaker or sturdy plastic cup(s) to make this recipe.
Now, place the fresh blueberries, fresh mint, and granulated sugar into the shaker.
Next, use a muddler to crush the berries and bruise the mint. You want to release all those flavors into the drink.
After that, pour in the rum, simple syrup, club soda, and freshly squeezed lime juice.
Also, go ahead and add a handful of ice to each glass and garnish them with more fresh mint and berries.
Then, gently shake the ingredients to mix the cocktail. Afterward, pour the drinks into the prepared glasses (10-12 ounce size).
Last, serve the drinks cold. That’s it, your blueberry mojitos are done! Kim and I hope you enjoy them responsibly and wish you all the best 🙂
