Carrie Minns: Blueberry Mojitos
Recipe by Carrie Minns, La Pomme de Portland
Combine blueberries, mint leaves, lime juice, rum, and simple syrup in the bottom of a tall glass. Crush, or muddle, these ingredients together.
For a kid-friendly version: Omit lime juice, rum, and club soda. In place of club soda, add ½ cup lemonade and ¼ cup sparkling water.
*For Simple Syrup: Combine ½ cup sugar and ½ cup water in small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Simmer until sugar dissolves, 3 minutes. Cool completely before using. Store in the refrigerator.
