Blueberry Mojito is a staple down in New Orleans and can now come to life anywhere thanks to Ray Leach sharing the recipe!
- 10 mint leaves, plus 1 mint sprig for garnish
- 10 blueberries
- 3/4 ounce Simple Syrup **
- 1 1/2 ounces gold rum
- 1 ounce fresh lime juice
- 1 ounce chilled club soda
- 1 ounce chilled Sprite
** Simple Syrup instructions:
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 cup of water
- Bring to a boil
- Simmer for 3 minutes (until sugar disolves)
- let it sit until syrup cools
Add the mint, blueberries and simple syrup into a cocktail shaker and then muddle (which means crush w/ a blunt object). Add ice, rum and lime juice then shake. Strain into a highball glass filled with ice then add your sprite and club soda.
Garnish with a lime wedge, some blueberries and a sprig of mint…it’s all about presentation!
