Not into “blue shoes” or “blue jewelry”?  Make your signature drink “something blue” with a refreshing blueberry mojito. Your guests will rave about it!

INGREDIENTS

8 fresh blueberries, plus more for serving
2 tablespoons (1 oz) fresh squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons sugar
8 fresh mint leaves, plus more for serving
1/4 cup (2 oz) white rum
Ice
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) club soda
Lime slice for garnish

DIRECTIONS

Add blueberries, lime juice, sugar and eight mint leaves to a cocktail shaker. Use the end of a wooden spoon or cocktail muddler to bash (or muddle) the mint into the lime juice and sugar. This releases oils from the mint, breaks up the blueberries and helps the sugar dissolve into the lime juice.  Add rum, stir well then pour into a tall glass filled with ice, leaving about an inch of room then top with club soda. Garnish with extra blueberries, mint leaves and a lime slice - AND ENJOY!!!
