Blueberry Mojito from BC Blueberries!


Sit Back, Relax with a Blueberry Mojito

 
Loaded with whole fresh blueberries, this super-cool mojito starts with muddled blueberries, lime juice and mint leaves, topped off with a bit of rum and a splash of soda. 

Carry a tray of tall, refreshing Blueberry Mojitos out to your friends poolside or show off your bartender skills and make them to order!

Remember this option when you have designated drivers in the crowd: leave out the rum.  Very cool.

Blueberry Mojito

     1 cup (250 mL) fresh mint leaves

 1 tablespoon (15 mL) fresh lime juice

 1 teaspoon (5 mL) sugar

 4 tablespoons (65 mL) fresh blueberries, divided

 1/2 cup (125 mL) lemonade

 Splash soda

 1 ounce (30 mL) light rum

 1/2 ounce (15 mL) dark rum

 Mint sprig and lime slice for garnish

In a tall 16-ounce (500 mL) glass, add mint leaves, lime juice and sugar; mash the ingredients with the back of a spoon or a "muddler" until fragrant.  Add 2 tablespoons (30 mL) of the blueberries and mash until juicy.  Fill the glass three-quarters with ice.  Add lemonade until the glass is two-thirds full.  Add splash of soda, light rum and remaining blueberries; stir.  Slowly pour dark rum into the drink so it floats on top.  Garnish with a sprig of mint and slice of lime; serve immediately.

YIELD: 1 portion

A blueberry party...we ought to have one of those. And drink and discuss how else to use blueberries...but I need a few more of these mojitos.

Very cool and perfect for this killer heat.

And something is wrong with my vision because your title, "Sit back" I initially read "Sex back"...my eyebrows went up while I scribbled blueberries on the shopping list!
