Thirsty Thursday: Blueberry Mojito!

Pinterest

Dear Diary,

Woah! This year has been flying by and I feel like I haven’t even had a moment to come up for air. “Be like a Duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like the dickens underneath.” I love staying busy and am always hustling, but sometimes you just need to stop and smell the liquor people! Summer calls for carefree moments with cocktails in hand. Indulge in a spontaneous happy hour! I promise you won’t regret it :) In this case I made myself one at home. (It’s still considered A cocktail if your glass is double the size right?!) My rather large mason jar sets the tone for a nice personal day.

Blueberry-Mint Mojito

Need:

  • Handful of fresh organic blueberries (if in a pinch you can use frozen and thawed), plus garnish
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons agave
  • Several fresh mint leaves, plus garnish
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) white rum
  • 1 cup ice
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) club soda
  • Lime slice for garnish

Recipe:

  • Add blueberries, lime juice, agave and a couple mint leaves to a cocktail shaker. Use a wooden spoon or muddler to mash the mint into the mixture. This brings out the aromas from the mint, and infuses the berries into the juice.
  • Add liquor, stir, then pour over ice. Top with club soda. Use the extra berries, mint leaves and a lime slice as a garnish. I used a tooth pick to skewer them all together.

Don’t forget the garnish… I love a little flare!

This light and refreshing cocktail will put you in a state of bliss, so turn on some Jimmy Buffet and watch your worries fade away… Plus, blueberries are packed with antioxidants so you’re basically cleansing right?!

Enjoy your Thursday! What’s your favorite summer cocktail recipe?
