    Blueberry Lavender Mojito

    Lusciously aromatic with bursts of flavor. Made to be sipped and savored.

    • 10-15 mint leaves
    • 1 ounce Lavender Syrup
    • Juice of 1/2 a pressed lime
    • 15-20 blueberries
    • 1 1/2 ounces white rum
    • Club soda

    In tall glass, muddle mint leaves, Lavender Syrup, lime juice, 15 blueberries, and rum. Muddle just enough to combine flavors, being careful not to over-muddle. Fill glass with crushed ice. Top with club soda. Stir with bar spoon until well blended.

    To garnish, place 3 to 4 blueberries on a cocktail pick. Serve with a straw.

    This drink dates from the early 1900s. The Mojito was created at the La Bodeguita del Medio Bar in Cuba. Ernest Hemingway made this cocktail an international sensation in the 1940s.
