This my fun fruity take on a traditional mojito recipe. I added some fresh blueberries for both taste and colour (I am a food blogger guys and colour is important, so bear with me). You can quite easily swap out the blueberries for other berries that you have lying around.

How To Make Blueberry Mojito
Step 1. Combine the mint, blueberries, lime juice and sugar syrup in a glass and crush the mint leaves as you mix.
Step 2. Then stir in the rum.
Step 3. Top with some ice and soda water, garnish and serve.
As you can see, these mojitos are really easy to make and are definitely perfect for quenching the thirst amongst the crowd. I recommend making a big pitcher of this at least 15 mins before guest arrive so that you can greet guests with an ice-cold cocktail upon arrival.
So here is my tip – invite a few friends over for brunch or a bbq, whip up a blueberry mojito or two, break out some eats including some grilled pomegranate harissa chicken and balsamic grilled peach and grilled scallop salad and enjoy the company away.
