Summer fun begins with a Blueberry Mojito Cocktail made with fresh mint, blueberries, lime juice, rum and a splash of club soda!

It’s the end of the school year which has always been my time stamp marking the beginning of summer vacation! So let’s kick of the season with a delicious blueberry mojito made without any sugar!

Mixing ingredients for beverages is so fun! I love creating drinks with as many fresh ingredients as possible. The difference in taste is so apparent that it’s hard to buy drinks from places that use pre-mixed syrups. If restaurants made cocktails the same way I do at home then I would be willing to purchase them more often when dining out!

I even tell the bartender that I don’t like overly sweet drinks, so only put a little sweetener in it. They never get it right. Too sweet or extra watery lacking the flavor that I want. One guy told me to stick with wine, which I think is solid advice! lol

I wish I could get those bartenders to step into my kitchen to see how easy it is to make flavorful syrups for cocktails. I guess you need to work with what you have, so crappy ingredients just end up being junky drinks!

A mojito isn’t a mojito without that delicious mint flavor, so be sure you have plenty of leaves to muddle so when the oils release you get that fresh minty taste!

You’ll love the mint and blueberry together, and will be especially pleased with how easy it is to make the syrup! I followed the same cooking method as this raspberry syrup, but used blueberries for the fruit and instead of adding granulated sugar I sweetened the berries with stevia.

If you haven’t tried this Fresh Raspberry Syrup you should! I used it to make a raspberry non-alcoholic refresher and Italian Sodas.

    I have had some rotten drinks out too. I agree that wine is a safer bet. This looks delicious. I recently made Watermelon Mojitos… Oh My Goodness. So I can just imagine how delicious these are

    Mojitos are my go-to summer cocktail! 🙂 Love that you made this one with blueberry syrup! I make a blueberry-ginger one with fresh blueberries & ginger ale instead of the club soda- SO good! 🙂

    I’ve also been told to stick with wine as I don’t like overly sweet drinks either. This looks delicious! 🙂
