Why You’ll Love This Blueberry Mojito
- Refreshing summery taste: the combination of blueberries, lime, and mint gives off some serious summer vibes.
- Loaded with antioxidants from the blueberries.
- Pretty as a picture: this cocktail will be the belle of the ball at your next party.
- Super easy to make and in no time at all.
Ingredients and Supplies
- Fresh mint leaves. One of the signature ingredients in this recipe.
- Limes. Substitute for lemon if you have to, but lime is preferable.
- Blueberry Vodka. You can also use regular vodka if you like.
- Sparkling water or Sprite. Use low-cal Sprite if you’re looking for a light cocktail.
- Wild blueberries. I like frozen wild blueberries, but fresh or regular frozen berries will do the trick.
- Crushed ice. Don’t use large ice cubes for this recipe.
- Sugar. You can also use a simple syrup or agave nectar in your recipe.
- cocktail muddler.
- mason jar. You can also use another type of cocktail glass.
How To Make A Blueberry Mojito
Here is the one, two, three to get you your own blueberry mojito cocktail:
Step 1: Make the cocktail mix
Place 4-6 mint leaves and 3-4 lime quarters in the bottom of the mason jar glass. Using a cocktail muddler press down on the mint and limes to release the lime juice.
Step 2: Build the drink
Add a scoop of crushed ice.
Depending on the size of your mason jar, add 1-2 oz of blueberry vodka.
Add 1⁄8 – 1⁄4 cup crushed wild blueberries.
Add another scoop of crushed ice.
Top the mojito up with a pour of sparkling water or Sprite. The Sprite makes the mojito sweeter (this is how I love it!).
If using the sparkling water, add 2-3 teaspoons of sugar and stir to combine.
Garnish and serve!
Tips and Substitutions
- Muddle the fresh blueberries and mint leaves gently to release their fragrance and aromatics.
- Play around with the quantities of Vodka to get to your preferred strength.
- Ensure the ingredients are chilled before making up the cocktail, including the club soda.
- Go ahead and use white rum if you don’t like vodka.
A classic mojito is typically made with white rum, mint, lime, and ice.
That is a matter of personal preference, but both are widely used in this cocktail.
Neither, regular fresh mint is most commonly used.
It is said that the original Mojito comes from Cuba and was a medicinal drink to curb disease. A rum-type alcohol was mixed with mint, lime, and sugar cane syrup to ward off illness.
