Blueberry Lavender Mojito

Cuba's national cocktail just got a makeover! Intensely floral, a lightly tart - This Lavender Blueberry Mojito is mixed with a lavender blueberry infused simple syrup, mint, and a generous pour of dark rum!

Ingredients

For the Lavender Blueberry Simple Syrup

  • 1/2 cup 1 cup of blueberries or small berry of choice
  • 1/4 cup Dried lavender buds
  • 1 1/2 cups Water
  • 1 1/2 cups Sugar

For the mojito

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Lavender Vanilla Sugar
  • 5-6 Mint leaves
  • 1 lime quartered Lime
  • 2 tablespoons Lavender Bluberry Simple Syrup
  • 2-3 tablespoons 1 - 1.5 ounces Dark rum
  • Ice
  • Seltzer
  • Mint leaves for garnish

Instructions

Make the simple syrup:

  • To a blender, add the blueberries and water. Puree on high until mostly smooth. Pour the blueberry puree in a medium saucepan. To the saucepan add the lavender buds and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium/high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the sugar has dissolved, about 8-9┬áminutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely, then strain and discard the solids. Pour the mixture in a glass container with a tight fitting lid until ready to use.
  • Makes about 2 cups of syrup, enough for many mojitos.

Make the mojito:

  • Add mint, lavender sugar and limes to an 8 ounce glass. Muddle with a muddler or a wooden spoon until the mint is fragrant and the lime has released its juice.
  • Add the lavender blueberry simple syrup and rum. Stir a bit to combine. Add ice, followed by seltzer. Stir gently to combine.
  • Garnish with mint and limes, if desired.
  • Sip.
