So, we have made what we feel to be our best Mojito recipe and now let’s have some fun. Of course it is great to try and perfect a classic. It is also fun to take what is great and throw our own ideas into the mix. For me, with a Mojito, it means making a Honey Blueberry Mojito. Go straight to recipe.
Why A Honey Blueberry Mojito?
Not gonna lie… I love blueberries. They are probably one of my favorite fruits. I love making blueberry ice cream, I love eating blueberries, and I love having them around. This is one thing that I generally pick up at the store when I can. And honey? Some of you might now that I am a beekeeper, so I do enjoy to throw honey in the mix whenever I can. A mojito calls for a sugar, and what better way to mix up the classic cocktail than to use nature’s sugar. Even Hemingway drank a variation of the Mojito that had honey (Gregorio’s Rx).
We get to keep all the things that are great about a Mojito (mint, rum, lime), but get to add some extra flair to the classic cocktail in a way that is both tasty and looks beautiful. So, enjoy!
