Fresh blueberries, rum, lime, mint, and a splash of soda are all you need to stir up a Blueberry Mojito. This bright and refreshing cocktail is easy to make and lovely for warm weather sipping.
When it comes to cocktails, I typically reach for bourbon or vodka. Give me an old-fashioned or a Moscow mule any day. However, every once and a while I get a craving for a margarita or a rum-based cocktail in the mix.
That’s why today we are stirring up some blueberry mojitos. I actually created and shared this recipe in the very early days of the blog (back when I was still learning photography and how to properly structure a blog post).
Consequently, I thought I would give these blueberry mojitos some new life through a fresh post and photos to encourage you to try them if you haven’t already done so. This cocktail certainly deserves another go as it is yummy!
