Blueberry Mojito – A classic mojito with a spin! Just 6 simple ingredients make this blueberry cocktail the perfect summer drink.
It’s summer! With our first 80 degree day this week, it is beginning to feel like it’s time to sit outside and enjoy a cocktail. One of my favorite drinks to make last year was my blackberry mojito so I decided to make a bit of a different spin on that this year – a blueberry mojito! All of the same great mojito flavors but with blueberries too!
When I serve this recipe, I like to put lots of fresh mint leaves and pieces of lime in. It makes the drink visually interesting and beautiful while also lending a little extra flavor. I suggest leaving the mint leaves whole so that it’s harder to end up with one going up your straw.
The recipe makes one serving but you can always scale it up if you are serving more people. Enjoy!
Common Questions About Making a Blackberry Mojito
What is a blueberry mojito?
A blueberry mojito is made with white rum, lime juice, club soda, blueberries, mint, and simple syrup.
Do you shake a mojito?
No, mojitos are served mixed over ice instead of shaken.
Do you muddle mint or use a simple syrup?
So for this recipe, there are three options for adding mint flavor and sweetness to this drink –
- Simple syrup and mint – The recipe calls for this option because it gives the drink sweetness and flavor while ridding the drink of pieces of granulated sugar that get stuck at the bottom.
- Mint simple syrup – If you have time to make mint simple syrup, it is a great way to give the drink a really consistent mint flavor.
- Granulated sugar and mint – The classic option. Muddling mint and granulated sugar is the classic way to make a mojito.
