It is blueberry season! In Michigan in July, the blueberries are ready to be picked. I have not gotten to pick blueberries yet this year but the ones from the store have been better than ever. The flavor is just perfect.

On my honeymoon to Riviera Maya, Mexico, I fell in love with mojitos. I drank the ones with alcohol then and when we went to Mexico again last year and I was pregnant, I drank the virgin ones. Both are great!

Mojitos are one of the only mixed drinks that I enjoy. They are fizzy, sweet, tangy from the lime and just delicious. On a recent trip to Saugatuck, MI at a delicious Italian restaurant, I had a raspberry mojito which was awesome. Then, I realized how many different types of mojitos that you can make. Basically to keep it a mojito, you just needed the mint, lime and sparkling water.

Blueberry Mojitos

1 12 oz can Vintage sparkling water
1 cup fresh blueberries
4 oz rum (optional) *please drink responsibly*
2 teaspoons sugar
Juice from 2 limes
Mint leaves

1. Puree blueberries until smooth in a food processor or blender.
2. Add mint leaves and sugar to a cocktail shaker and using a wooden spoon muddle the mint and sugar (basically smash them up).
3. Add the rum, blueberries and lime juice and shake.
4. Pour the ice and sparkling water into 2 glasses and pour in the mixture.
5. Serve with a lime slice, blueberries and mint.

These turned out awesome and are perfect for summer! I would make these again with all different fruits. I am thinking a mango one would be awesome.

Blueberry Mojitos
For this recipe, I used Vintage Sparkling Water which I purchased from Kmart. It is delicious! I loved the bubbly feel in my mouth. They had original flavor, grapefruit, lime, lemon, cucumber melon and coconut. These are calorie and sugar-free.

They only have 2 ingredients: carbonated water and natural flavors (which may be an essence, extract or oil from the fruit listed on the label). Compared to seltzer, sparkling water has fewer, softer bubbles and has more fruit flavor.

    Sounds so tasty, but I'm going to look at it from a slightly different eye. Grinding the blueberries up is going to leave a lot of sludge in the bottom of your glass. I'm thinking of processing about 3/4 of them, infusing them into the rum for 2 or 3 days, and then straining them out (keep them for ice cream topping or for muffins). Freeze the rest of the berries whole to use in place of ice cubes if you don't want your drink diluted.
