Tis the season for fruity drinks! These Blueberry Mojito Mocktails are 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 (like these Peach Cherry Wine Slushies). 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.
Simple syrup is great because it mixes well into cold drinks (unlike raw sugar), and you can add it to just about anything (desserts, cocktails, coffee, and even pancake batter…)
Plus, it is easy to add flavor variety into your recipes just by adding one main flavor ingredient to the syrup, like we do with my Vanilla Simple Syrup or Lavender Simple Syrup recipes.
The simple syrup in these blueberry mojito mocktails is muddled with lime and mint and topped off with ice and a bit of sparkling water. This drink is sweet, refreshing, and other than maybe my traditional Orange Julius recipe, I can’t think of another drink that just tastes more 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.
