How to make fresh blueberry mojitos
Cut the lime into quarters.
Wash the mint leaves and the blueberries.
Add 6 to 10 leaves of fresh mint and 2 teaspoons of sugar to a glass.
Add 2 Tablespoons of fresh blueberries into a glass.
Then squeeze one of the lime quarters into the glass.
Use a muddler or the back of a spoon to muddle (or mash) the ingredients in the glass until the blueberries are crushed and the sugar has dissolved.
Mix the cocktail
Fill the glass with ice.
Add 1.5 ounces of rum.
Top up the glass with club soda.
The garnish is not absolutely necessary but it does make the drink look pretty.
To do this, add a blueberry and a sprig of mint to a toothpick. And add it to the top of the drink.
