This refreshing drink demands for a few ingredients such as,
Blueberries – Blueberries, are such a refreshing berry that will even give you a sudden relief from the heat outside. Use fresh or frozen berries to make this drink.
You can also substitute blueberries with other berries such as strawberries or raspberries or even kiwi. Do try this mojito with kiwi, I just love the flavor it brings to the drink.
Club Soda – Add soda for that fizz in your refreshing drink. You can even add sparkling water, instead of club soda to make this mojito.
White Rum – I have added white rum in this Mojito because it tastes the best. When it comes to alcohol, even vodka or tequila tastes great in this drink instead of white rum!
Other Ingredients – Other than these, you will need sugar, mint leaves, lime juice, and ice cubes.
Other herbs like basil and rosemary also pairs well with blueberry. So can try these too.
How to make Blueberry Mojito?
Wash ¼ cup blueberries and add them to a tall high ball serving glass. Muddle them using a muddler or the back of a wooden spoon until nicely crushed. If you don’t like the skin coming in your mouth, you can also puree the berries in a blender and pass the puree through a strainer.
Now add 10-12 washed mint leaves, and 1 tbsp sugar in the glass and crush some more using the muddler. Muddling the mint leaves will help release their flavor and will also dissolve the sugar.
Add 60 ml white rum, and 1 tbsp lime juice in the glass and mix well using a tall spoon or a drink stirrer.
Note – You can skip adding rum to make a non alcoholic version.
Top the glass with club soda until almost full. Keep some space for ice cubes and the garnishing.
Add a few ice cubes. Garnish the drink with more blueberries, mint sprig and lime slices or wedges. Serve immediately.
Frequently Asked Questions
Some of the refreshing cocktails, especially summer cocktails, which use fresh fruits and herbs include a step called muddle in the process of preparing the cocktail.
It simply means pressing the herbs and fruits with a muddler, so that they release their juices and get mixed with the alcohol and soda better.
To muddle blueberries wash them well and add them to a bowl or glass you are serving your drink in.
Use a muddler or back of a wooden spoon to mash the blueberries, so that the flavor of blueberries can mix up well with the other ingredients.
Mojito pitchers are the lifesavers to make if you’re throwing a summer party.
All you have to do is, keep the blueberry mixture ready.
The time you are serving it, just add the alcohol, soda, and ice cubes, stir it up and your Blueberry Mojito for a crowd is ready.
White rum tastes the best in mojitos, as it gives a perfect color and flavor to the drink. Use any good quality and reasonably priced white rum to make this drink. I mostly use bacardi.
You can even add vodka instead of white rum to make this drink. Follow the same recipe, just substitute white rum with vodka, and you mojito is ready!
I always recommend adding freshly squeezed lime juice, as it brings out flavour the most. But if fresh lemons are not available, you can use store bought lime juice too.
Blueberry mojito tastes best when fresh, but you can make the blueberry mixture in advance and store it in the fridge for days. You just have to mix soda, alcohol, ice cubes while making the cocktail.
