A few days ago I made a berry mojito.  I had ordered a blueberry mojito while vacationing in Maui at the Four Seasons. The cocktail was delicious, and my homemade concoction wasn’t too bad either. Give it a try, maybe you’ll have a drink or two…

Berry Mojito

Makes 1 mojito. Get ready to triple and quadruple!
Use a shot glass for measuring and a cocktail shaker for shaking, if available.

  • Fresh mint leaves (6-7 each)
  • Fresh blueberries (8-10 each)
  • 1 oz. raspberry syrup (Monin)
  • crushed ice (If you don’t have an ice machine, crush ice in a Ziploc bag with the back of a wooden spoon.)
  • 1.5 oz.vodka
  • 1 oz. fresh lime juice
  • club soda

Muddle mint, blueberries, and raspberry syrup with a muddler or the clean bottom of something blunt, like a screwdriver. Fill glass with crushed ice.

Add 1.5 oz.vodka, 1 oz. lime juice, and fill with club soda.

Shake thoroughly (if you don’t have a cocktail shaker, just stir with a long spoon or knife).

Serve. Garnish with extra blueberries, if desired.

Happy Monday!
