This my fun fruity take on a traditional mojito recipe. I added in 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.
These mojitos are really easy to make and are definitely perfect for quenching the thirst amongst the crowd. 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.
Here is how to make these blueberry mojitos. Please do try them and if you do make them, then please do tag #recipesfromapantry on Instagram or twitter so that I can pop over and have a look. It is really, really awesome for me when you make any one of my recipes.
