I adore Blueberry Mojitos.
Are you scared of veering
from the classic traditional version?
This has a lovely summer freshness
that makes it worth trying.
Directions: Smash the blueberries and mint together using the back of a spoon. I prefer frozen blueberries because the skins are softer. Add lime juice, simple syrup, desired amount of Bacardi (shot and a half or so), stir and top off with club soda or Sprite. YUM.
