Happy Memorial Day, guys! For once, we have a pretty chill weekend planned–organizing the house, yard work, strawberry picking, and of course fitting in some good food and wine! I can’t remember the last day that I had off of work that I wasn’t traveling (I know, I know, poor me, ha!). So, i’m excited to sleep in and relax! Although Nick is making me do 3 days in a row of Health House classes so I probably won’t be able to walk by Monday–yikes!
I made this blueberry mojito recipe last Friday and let me just say, it is DANGEROUS! It tastes so refreshing (not overly sweet at all), you can barely taste the rum, and it goes down alllll too quickly. Add some strawberries or raspberries and you’ve got yourself a festive drink for Memorial Day!
Recipe adapted from Summer Table Cookbook
Serving size – 1 drink*
1.5 oz white rum (1 shot)
3/4 tablespoon white sugar
4-5 mint leaves
1 heaping tablespoon of frozen blueberries
2 lemon slices
- In a large cup, fill with rum, sugar, mint, blueberries, and lemon slices. Using a muddler (I used this one) or regular spoon, smash/muddle ingredients together for about a minute.
- Add ice to cup and top with club soda
*there were four of us drinking these and we went through almost a liter of rum (I told you, they are that good!), 1 package of mint leaves, 1/2 bag frozen blueberries, a few lemons, and half of a liter of club soda
