Blueberry Mojito (Original Recipe)


Again, it's not hard to make a simple modification to a classic cocktail and make it very impressive to your guests. Blueberry syrup gives a Mojito a kind of bramble quality with berry flavor and beautiful purple color. Otherwise this recipe remains true to the original with the exception of powdered sugar for the mint garnish. It's a New Orleans-style flourish that I do when I have the sugar handy.

  • 2 oz. lightly aged rum (Rhum Barbancourt 4-year-old statemet used)
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. blueberry syrup
  • club soda
  • 10 mint leaves
  • mint sprig garnish 

In a shaker tin, muddle 10 mint leaves in blueberry syrup. Add lime juice, rum and ice and shake. Pour into a Collins glass full of fresh ice and top with soda, stirring gently. Garnish with the mint sprig.
