Blueberry Mojito

 

This time of year blueberries are so easy to come by. Farmers markets and blueberries patches are overflowing.  Just this week my supermarket had them on sale buy one get one free!  Sounds great in theory until it’s 4 days later and you’ve got a fridge full of blueberries! :)


When life hands you blueberries, make a blueberry mojito!

The sweetness of the blueberries pairs perfectly with the tartness of the limes.  This recipe makes 2 blueberry mojitos, but you might want to double it because they go down easy!
