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.
But finding blueberries is a little difficult. Either you don’t find them or they are very expensive in the stores.
In such cases, I substitute them 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.
You can even use frozen blueberries, as they are easily available and comparatively cheaper than the fresh ones.
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, lemon juice, and ice cubes.
Other herbs like basil and rosemary also pairs well with blueberry. So can try these too.
