One of my favorite summer drinks is a mojito.   I love the combination of tart lime juice with fresh mint from my garden.   There’s something so light and refreshing about this classic cocktail.   So why am I switching it up and making a Blueberry Mojito?   Because sometimes even the best cocktail can use a little twist!

Last week when I was in Aldi’s I saw that blueberries were on sale for under a dollar.  Since they are never under a dollar I bought 3 containers figuring I’d find something to do with them when I got home.  The very next day those same blueberries were staring me in the face so I took them out and decided to make a cocktail!

Everything you need to make a Blueberry Mojito

I played around with a few different cocktail (3 different ones) but the one I liked the best was the mojito.   I basically used the classic mojito recipe but I also muddled blueberries in with the limes and mint.  The color of the cocktail is gorgeous and the blueberry flavor really adds a little something to the traditional mojito.

I made these last weekend when we had people over and they were a huge hit.   Everyone liked that the blueberries add a bit of sweetness to the mojito but the lime and mint flavors were still there.  This is a great recipe to make for summer parties and BBQ’s!

Love the combination of lime, mint, and blueberries in this Blueberry Mojito recipe!
