It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe with you guys, but I thought summer time was the perfect time to share a new one! A week ago, I went blueberry picking with a friend of mine and picked an overabundance of berries. I made muffins and jam (and then, more muffins!) and even ate the berries out of the bag as a mid day snack a few days in a row before deciding to try out a summertime cocktail recipe.
Mojitos are one of my favorite drinks! Especially when they’re flavored with blueberries or blackberries. The fresh fruit, the mint, and of course, RUM make such a delicious and refreshing treat. I adapted a recipe from a few different ones I found via google…here it is!
Two ounces of rum
1/2 cup of blueberries
Lime juice to taste (I used about a tablespoon or so…I like lime!) (not pictured)
1 tsp sugar (not pictured)
Add berries, mint, and sugar to the bottom of a cocktail shaker and crush with the back of a spoon to muddle together. Then add rum and lime juice and shake it up! Divide between two glasses, then top glasses off with club soda. Stir with a straw and get your sip on!
Hope you guys enjoyed this recipe! How fun would this be as a wedding signature drink??
