Fun and Fruity Cocktail
Blueberries are one of my favorite types of fruit. I love picking them fresh in the summertime and eating them by the handfuls.
After making a few different types of fruity mojitos, I knew I wanted to try and make one with blueberries. They aren’t too sweet that they overpower the mint and rum. Nope! They actually complement the flavors perfectly.
Plus, you just can’t beat how pretty they are in the glass. Their dark blue hues glisten through the sparkling club soda and white rum.
This drink is pretty enough to serve at your next party! I call it a blueberry mojito, but I’m sure you can come up with a really creative name for this fruity cocktail.
When Are Blueberries In Season?
You just can’t beat the taste of fresh, vine-ripened blueberries! Blueberry season changes depending on where you live. These are typically summertime fruit. They are ready for harvest anytime from June to August.
How To Make Blueberry Mojito Cocktail
You don’t have to be an expert mixologist to make this mojito cocktail. In fact, all you need to know is how to muddle the blueberries with the mint and mix a few ingredients together.
You are going to love this drink. It will remind you of sunsets on the beach or fresh-picked blueberries from the farm.
Mojito Cocktail Ingredients
In addition to the traditional mojito ingredients like rum and mint, I used extra sugar and fresh blueberries. The blueberries are not sweet enough on their own, so they needed a little bit of help.
Here is what I used in this blueberry mojito cocktail:
- White rum
- Lime, juiced
- Simple Syrup
- Fresh mint leaves
- Fresh blueberries
- Club soda
How To Muddle The Ingredients
The most important step in this recipe is to muddle the mint, blueberries, and lime juice in the glass.
When you muddle ingredients, you are basically pressing them with enough force to extract the flavors and combine them. You don’t want to puree them, you just want to get as much taste out of them as possible.
They sell a tool called a muddler for this exact purpose. If you don’t have a muddler, you can use a mortar and pestle or even a spoon.
Club Soda Mojito Substitute
Club soda has the best flavor for mojitos. There are other options you can use instead of club soda. Try this with any type of carbonated water – tonic or seltzer water all work really well.
How Much Rum To Put In A Mojito
The only type of alcohol in this drink is white rum, so you can make it as strong as you like it! I only use about a shot and a half. I’m sure it will taste pretty good with two shots.
How to Garnish A Blueberry Mojito Cocktail
There are a couple of different ways you can garnish this fun drink. I just put a few blueberries on a fancy toothpick and stuck it in the glass. You could also garnish it with some fresh mint leaves and add a decorative drink umbrella.
