Blueberry Lime Mojito
I spotted this tasty little cocktail on Pinterest – one look at that vibrant blue color and I was sold! We all enjoy Green Shakes for breakfast – this summer how about Blue Shakes for lunch?
Recipe yields two drinks – but I always double it because in my world of “go big or go home,” pitchers are always the way to go!
- 1 cup fresh blueberries, plus extra for garnish
- 4 oz clear rum
- 10 fresh mint leaves
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- Juice of 2 limes
- 6 oz club soda
- In a food processor on blender, puree blueberries until smooth. Set aside.
- Add mint leaves and sugar to a cocktail shaker. Use a muddler (or the end of a wooden spoon) to muddle the mint and sugar. Add the lime juice, rum, and pureed blueberries: shake vigorously.
- Pour ice and club soda into two tall glasses and then pour in rum mixture. Gently stir. Garnish with a lime wedge, extra blueberries, and a sprig of mint. Serve immediately.
