I’ve been on the fruity cocktail train this summer and I’m not sorry about it at all! :D I love how much a little muddled fruit can really enhance a drink.

I bought a TON of blueberries a few weeks ago since they were so cheap. I’ve been baking up a storm with them and even froze a few to make my favorite Blueberry Smoothie. BUT, I figured it would be nice to incorporate some of them into a cocktail. ENTER: this super simple Blueberry Mojito.

This is very similar to a classic mojito. At the same time that the mint is muddled, we’re going to throw in 1/2 cup of fresh (frozen work too!) blueberries and muddle them in with the mint. The goal is to get the nice and crushed but there will still be some larger chunks of blueberry left over.

You can keep those chunks in your drink OR strain them out if you’d prefer. I typically just leave them in. More often than not, they just sink to the bottom of the glass anyways and don’t really bother me.

Notes

*Often when I’m feeling a little lazy, I throw the un-juiced lime half into the shaker with the mint and muddle it to release the flavors and juice.
