Description

Blueberry mojito features homemade blueberry infused rum, fresh mint leaves, lime juice, fresh blueberries, simple syrup and seltzer. Light, refreshing and delicious!


Ingredients

Scale

FOR THE SIMPLE SYRUP:

1 cup raw organic sugar

1 cup water

FOR THE BLUEBERRY INFUSED RUM:

1 Bottle of your favorite light rum. I used Bacardi.

1 cup washed Blueberries.

1 glass bottle with secure lid.

FOR THE BLUBERRY MOTJITOS

812 fresh mint leaves (divided between two glasses)

1 part simple syrup for each glass

1 part fresh squeezed lime juice for each glass

Fresh blueberries (washed)

1.5 shots Blueberry Infused Rum for each glass. If you don’t have time to make the infused rum. Regular light rum will do!

Seltzer water

Ice.


Instructions

FOR THE SIMPLE SYRUP:

Heat sugar and water together and bring to a boil.

Boil for 2-3 minutes then set aside to cool fully.

FOR THE BLUEBERRY INFUSED RUM:

Rinse blueberries and place in the bottom of the glass bottle.

Pour the entire bottle of rum into the blueberries and seal with fitted lid.

Place in a cool dark place and allow 1 week to sit for ultimate flavor.

I actually ended up using ours after 4 days and you could already taste the flavor of the blueberries in the rum.

FOR THE BLUBERRY MOJITOS

Muddle simple syrup and lime juice together in each glass.

Add in mint and lightly bruise the leaves, but be sure not to over muddle them.

Top each glass with ice, then add in the blueberry infused rum.

Finish with seltzer water.

Garnish with blueberries, mint leaves or the 12th Man Garnishes.

Enjoy!
