Blueberry Mojito (Virgin and Regular Recipies)

It's finally that time of year when the weather begins to have more warm days than there are cold, or if you're an Oregon resident, it means that there is more than one sunny day this month.

It's time for summer time drinks!

To kick off this summer drink season my best friend and I chose to have some Blueberry Mojitos. However, since neither of us drink we made some virgin mojitos, and in my opinion it tastes just as good and I don't have to worry about a hangover in the morning! 

My kitchen currently does not have any bar supplies so I just used my bullet, mortar and an old jar with a lid.  If you do have bar supplies you will need a food processor, cocktail shaker and a muddler.

Blueberry Mojito (Virgin)

1 cup blueberries, plus some for garnish
2 teaspoons sugar
2-4 mint leaves
6 ounces club soda
2 limes juiced (roughly 2 tablespoons)

Puree blueberries, set aside.
In a cocktail shaker put sugar and mint leaves, use muddler to muddle the mint and sugar together. Add lime juice, club soda and blueberry puree, mix thoroughly.
Pour into ice filled, sugar rimmed glasses, garnish with lime wedge and blueberries.

Blueberry Mojito (regular)

Add 4 ounces Rum in cocktail mixer along with the lime juice, club soda and blueberry puree.

To Muddle: the act of mashing ingredients together at the bottom of a glass using a muddler (large stick designed for this purpose)
