Blueberry Cherry Mojito

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries + some for garnish if desired
  • ⅓ cup fresh cherries, pitted and cut in half
  • 10 fresh mint leaves + more for garnish
  • 3 teaspoons sugar, split
  • 6 ounces white rum, split
  • juice from 1 lime
  • ¾ teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Lemon Extract, split
  • 6 ounces club soda, split
  • Ice cubes
  • lime wedges for garnish

Preparation

  1. Divide blueberries and cherries evenly into 3 tall, sturdy glasses. Use a muddler to crush the blueberries and cherries. Add in a few mint leaves and 1 teaspoon of sugar into each glass. Use the muddler again to gently crush the mint leaves.
  2. Stir in 2 ounces of rum, a squeeze of fresh lime juice and about a ¼ teaspoon of the Nielsen-Massey Pure Lemon Extract evenly into each glass. Pour in the club soda and add some ice cubes. Stir, taste and add more sugar if desired. Garnish with extra blueberries, a lime wedge and some more mint if desired.

I made my mojitos directly in each glass for more flavor but you can certainly use a cocktail shaker or pitcher.
