Blueberry Mojito Mocktail Recipe

Light, bright and fizzy, a Blueberry Mojito might be the perfect summer drink. Blend blueberries, mint, and lime juice with honey, then pour over club soda to add bubbles. Cheers!

Mojitos are traditionally made with muddled mint, rum, sugar, but to make this without the rum, you can add fresh blueberries and sweeten with honey to take the flavor up a notch and give you an antioxidant boost!

Be sure to take advantage of the HOT sale on fresh blueberries at Safeway this week – they are $2.99  for the large 18 oz containers through May 5th.  Limes are also on sale for just $.50 each.

History of the Mojito

The mojito comes from Cuba and it is reported that Sir Francis Drake discovered the drink when visiting the island.

It was traditionally made with a moonshine rum-type alcohol that mixed with mint, lime, and sugar cane syrup to ward off illness. When pirates invaded Cuba the drink was introduced to Sir Francis Drake where it’s reported he promptly used rum in place of the Cuban moonshine.

The drink took on the name El Draque until it became known as the Mojito.

How to Make a Mojito

A mojito is traditionally made by muddling (crushing) mint with sugar or simple syrup in a cocktail shaker or a glass, then add rum and soda.  For this blueberry mojito mocktail, a blender is used so that the blueberries get pulverized and infuse the mojito with delicious blueberry flavor.

Combine the blueberries, mint honey, soda water, and lime juice in a blender and give a whirl until the blueberries and mint are crushed.

Serve over ice with additional mint and blueberries to garnish.

Delicious and refreshing – it is the perfect summer cocktail or mocktail!

If you want to make this an alcoholic mojito, simply add 2 oz of rum to the blender while mixing your drink.
