We have been on a Mojito kick latley. Maybee its summer that sets this delicious drink into an afternoon must have or the fact that I have the worlds largest mint plant and need a reason to use it, but either way these babies are delicious. We have experimented with other types of fruit (mango, cherry, and pineapple), but if you are serving to a crowd, the blueberry version is fast and easy....no chopping required.
Ingredients (makes 1 drink):
6 to 8 mint leaves
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) of lemon juice
2 teaspoons of sugar
1/4 cup (2 ounces) of white rum
1 cup of ice
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) of club soda
Lime slice for garnish
Muddle (smash together) the blueberries and mint with the lemon juice and sugar in the shaker. Add rum to shaker. Fill your glass with ice. Place your shaker over the glass filled with ice and pour. Add the soda to the remaining space (about an inch of soda). Add your decretive straw and lime and sip, sip, sip.
