Virgin Blueberry Mojito

March 18th, 2023 Drink of the Week

blueberry mojito

This is super yummy. I muddled the mixture using a mortar and pestle but you could use a bowl with a spoon or some such. Limes are expensive but who cares we are worth it!


Handful fresh blueberries plus more for garnish
I tbsp sugar
10 fresh mint leaves
1 lime cut into wedges
Crushed ice
Ginger Ale


Muddle together the blueberries, sugar, mint leaves and 2 wedges of lime.
Remove the lime and spoon the rest of the mixture into two glasses.
Drop in some crushed ice and top up with ginger ale.
Garnish with another wedge of lime.
