Tis the season for fruity drinks! This Blueberry Mojito Mocktail is fresh, fruity, and perfect for spring brunches and showers!
When the Mr. and I go out to eat, I don’t usually order a cocktail. It’s partly because I’m cheap and the price of cocktails at fancy restaurants makes me choke, but it’s also partly because I like to save my calories for the main attraction: the food.
If I do order a cocktail, you can bet it’s going to be something fruity or frozen. I’m a sucker for a peach bellini, a frosty strawberry daiquiri, or a fuzzy navel, but if there’s any kind of berry mojito on the menu that’s going to be my pick 100% of the time.
With the weather warming up and my food blogging friends posting all sorts of gorgeous boozy berry concoctions, I’ve been feeling more than a little thirsty. Baby R and I might not be able to indulge in the boozy beverages, but that doesn’t mean I have to go without the fresh, fruity, citrus flavor of my favorite drink!
These Blueberry Mojito Mocktails took a few tries, but I’m happy to say they’re exactly what I was after. They start with a dreamy blueberry simple syrup, which is what gives this drink it’s gorgeous color. The simple syrup is muddled with lime and mint and topped off with ice and a bit of sparkling water. This drink is sweet, refreshing, and tastes like summer. And since it’s alcohol-free, it’s a great drink to bring to a baby shower or family event with the kiddos.
Speaking of family events, today the #SundaySupper team is talking all about picnics! We’re breaking out the blankets and coolers and taking our meal to the great outdoors. There’s no better way to celebrate spring than with good food and lots of sunshine. From appetizers to beverages to desserts and everything in between, these recipes were meant to be enjoyed al fresco, so pick your favorites, grab a few friends and head to the patio!
