Tips on Blueberry Mojitos

  • Make the syrup several hours in advance so it has time to chill.
  • Don’t love blueberry? Swap the blueberries in the mojito and syrup for blackberries or strawberries.
  • Fresh limes and mint are necessary for this recipe.
  • Make it a mocktail by leaving out the rum and increasing the blueberry syrup to 2 oz.

Blueberry Syrup

1 ½ cups blueberries (thawed, if frozen)
½ cup sugar
½ cup water

Combine blueberries, water, and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to boil, reduce to simmer and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Allow to cool for 10 minutes

Place a fine mesh sieve over a large bowl. Carefully pour berry mixture into the strainer. Using a spatula, gently press the mixture into the strainer until all blueberries are crushed and all liquid has been pressed through to the bowl below. Discard the blueberries remnants left in the strainer. Cool syrup to at least room temperature – preferably chilled – before using.
