Blueberry Mixology

When I asked everyone to share their favorite blueberry recipe, I can pretty much guarantee you I didn’t think I’d have to bring out the rum! Lucky for us, Terri reminded me of her delicious blueberry mojitos
Mr. Blue Eyed Yonder was grilling some delicious ginger-teriyaki glazed chicken skewers so I thought I would try this unique twist – Blueberry Ginger Mojitos. Yum!

Blueberry Ginger Mojito
adapted from Food Network

What you will need:

For the Ginger Simple Syrup:
1/4 cup fresh grated ginger
1 cup sugar
1 cup cold water

For the Mojito:
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 lime, cut into wedges
20-24 fresh mint leaves
4 ounces ginger simple syrup
4 ounces Rum
5 ounces club soda
ice cubes
blueberries, for garnish
mint sprigs, for garnish

For the Ginger Simple Syrup:

Peel and grate the ginger and add it, together with the sugar and cold water, to a saucepan. Bring it to the boil and stir until the sugar dissolves. Cover and let steep for 15 minutes. Strain and cool in the refrigerator when done.

For the Mojito:

Add the blueberries, lime wedges and fresh mint leaves to the glass (or pitcher). Muddle with a wooden spoon so the blueberries are broken and the mint and lime release their juices and flavor. If assembling pitchers you can cover them at this stage and leave in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, add the simple syrup, vodka and top off with club soda. Give it a quick stir and then pour into glasses with ice cubes. Garnish with a handful of fresh blueberries and a sprig of mint.

The recipe outlined above is for 2 tall glasses, but you can use the ratio to make pitchers (depending on how big your pitcher is double or quadruple the recipe).
