Dot

Ingredients

You will need fresh blueberries, mint leaves, lime juice, simple syrup, white rum, soda water, and ice.

Preparation

Begin by gathering all your ingredients. Ensure the blueberries are washed and the mint leaves are fresh for the best flavor.

Muddling

In a sturdy glass, muddle a handful of blueberries with a few mint leaves and lime juice. This releases the flavors and aromas essential for the mojito.

Adding Sweetness

Pour in the simple syrup to add the right amount of sweetness. Adjust the quantity according to your taste preference.

Incorporating Rum

Add a generous splash of white rum to the glass. The rum complements the fruity and minty flavors perfectly.

Mixing

Gently stir the mixture to combine all the ingredients. Make sure the flavors meld together for a balanced taste.

Adding Ice

Fill the glass with ice cubes to chill the drink. Crushed ice works well for a more authentic mojito experience.

Topping with Soda

Top off the mixture with soda water for a refreshing fizz. This gives the mojito its classic bubbly texture.

Garnishing

Garnish with a few blueberries, a sprig of mint, and a lime wedge. This not only enhances the presentation but also adds extra flavor.

Serving

Serve the fresh blueberry mojito immediately while it’s cold and refreshing. It’s perfect for hot summer days or casual gatherings.
