Spring Cocktail Pick- Blue Mojito

Blue Mojito

Ingredients:

1/3 cup blueberries (plus extra for a fancy blueberry swizzle stick)
6-8 leaves fresh mint
1 tablespoon sugar in the raw (I’m into slightly tart cocktails, but feel free to add an extra teaspoon or two of sugar if you like a sweeter drink.)
2½ tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 ounces light rum
Crushed ice
2 ounces chilled Prosecco or champagne

Blue Mojito

Instructions:

Place the blueberries, mint leaves, sugar, and lime juice in a glass. (I recommend a 12-ounce glass or mason jar, but you can obviously use whatever you like.)

Using a muddling tool or wooden spoon, muddle the ingredients in the bottom of the glass until the blueberries have released their juices.Blue Mojito

Fill the glass with crushed ice and pour the rum over. Give it a stir.
