Blueberry Mojitos


for blueberry syrup---

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

1 cup fresh blueberries

for drink assembly---

1/4 cup blueberry syrup (each)

2 oz light rum (each)

fresh mint

juice of 1 lime for each glass

8 oz club soda


Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepot over medium heat. Bring to a simmer then stir to dissolve all sugar. Remove from heat.

Carefully transfer sugar water to a blender and add fresh blueberries. Process until smooth but still slightly chunky. Remove and transfer to a glass jar or tupperware. Place in fridge and chill until cool. Blueberries will rise to the top and you can just skim them off when ready to use.

When you're ready to make your drinks, place about two sprigs of mint in each glass. Squeeze a lime over top and muddle (mix around) with the bottom of a spoon. Then, add 1/4 cup blueberry syrup, 2 oz rum, and finish each glass with club soda.
