While laying in bed one Saturday morning for whatever reason, blueberries popped into my head. Then pineapple. Then MOJITOS!? Ah…. yep. I love mojitos. They are really the perfect summer drink. But, the price tag when ordering them at a restaurant, no thanks.
Make these and enjoy them on your deck, patio or like we did, standing in the kitchen slurping them to the last drop. Just keepin' it real people. I promise you will like them. Pinky swear.
Blueberry Pineapple Mojitos
(makes one drink but can be easily doubled or quadrupled)
1 1/2 cups crushed ice
1 lime wedge
4-5 mint leaves
a handful of blueberries
2-3 fresh pineapple chunks
2 packets Sweet 'n Low
1.5 oz (1 shot) white rum
8 oz soda water
In a glass or cocktail shaker, add a cup of the crushed ice. Squeeze the lime into the glass/shaker, toss the whole lime wedge in as well. Then add the blueberries, pineapple, Sweet 'n Low and rum. Using a muddler or the back of a large wooden spoon, smash everything together.
Pour everything into a glass. Add the remaining ice and top off with soda water. Stir to combine and serve.
