Blueberry mojito + more patriotic cocktails

Blueberry mojito My hubby considers himself to be a mojito expert. He has been known to rate restaurants by how good their mojito cocktails are (yes, this is usually when I roll my eyes). So I was nervous to try one a home! But I love mint and thought it would be fun to add blueberries to the mix. I’m a sucker for anything berry related. A bonus to adding the blueberries (besides the extra tastiness) is the pretty blueish purple hue it turns the drink. Very 4th of July festive!

Muddle the blueberries and mint in a small bowl with a splash of soda until they’ve released their juices. Pour the berries into a shaker (I use a red Solo cup) and fill with ice. Add the rum, simple syrup and squeeze of lime. Give it a good shake then strain into a glass filled with ice. Add club soda on top. Garnish with mint and blueberries.
