What Do You Need For A Blueberry Mojito?
You only need a handful of ingredients for this refreshing summer cocktail, so check your fridge or freezer! Scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of the post for full ingredient amounts.
- Fresh blueberries – Frozen blueberries are okay too use if you thaw them first.
- Simple syrup – Feel free to use raw honey or agave as well.
- Fresh mint leaves – It’s not really a mojito without mint, but you can always leave it out.
- Lime juice – Lemon juice will work in a pinch, but lime gives you the best zesty flavor.
- White rum
- Club soda – You can use sparkling water instead.
What Alcohol Goes In A Mojito?
White rum is the best kind for mojitos. It’s also referred to as “silver” or “blanco,” depending on the brand. Aged rum works too but it will give your cocktail a hint of smokiness.
Tips for Success
You’ll feel like a professional bartender with these easy tips that’ll take your mojito to the next level.
- Strain it. If you’re not into bits of fruit skin, strain the puréed blueberries for a smooth cocktail.
- Add food coloring. A drop of blue food coloring can make your blueberry mojito a beautiful electric blue.
- Use berries. A frozen mix of your favorite berries is a great substitute for blueberries in this recipe.
- Add compote. Pour 1-2 tablespoons of blueberry compote to each serving glass, add ice, and pour in the mojito for an extra fruity drink.
- Make minty ice cubes. Chop up 2-4 mint leaves and add them to ice cube trays. Fill them with water. Freeze completely and use the ice cubes to add extra flair to your drink.
This blueberry mojito is best for a laid-back cocktail night. You can serve it with other mojitos like my Pineapple Coconut Mojito for some boozy, fruity variety. For a light bite, pair it with some easy appetizers like my Pulled Pork Crescent Ring and BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders. Crispy Baked Potato Wedges are a great option too. If you’d like a particularly simple but flavorful snack, you can always do a trio of dips: Avocado Salsa, Restaurant Style Salsa and Authentic Guacamole with Tortilla Chips.
Can I Make A Pitcher of Mojitos?
Yes! Double or triple the recipe ingredients and prepare the mojito in the pitcher without ice or club soda. When it’s time to serve, add the club soda into the pitcher and stir gently. Pour it into ice-filled glasses.
Can Blueberry Mojitos Be Prepared In Advance?
Yes! Skip the ice and club soda until right before serving. You can prepare the mojitos up to 3 days in advance.
