Do you remember the first time you tried a mojito? For me is was several years ago, and mojitos were becoming very popular on restaurant menus. My husband and I were at our favorite Tex-Mex place, and it was especially warm outside. Ordering a cold, refreshing cocktail was definitely in order.
The moment the cocktail hit the table, I knew I would love it! It’s very pretty with fresh, green mint leaves, and even the look of the cocktail says “cold….refreshing…laid-back.” This is exactly what a delicious mojito brings, and my Blueberry Coconut Mojito is no exception.
What do I need to make a blueberry mojito?
Here’s a quick reference checklist of the ingredients you’ll need to make a blueberry mojito:
- Fresh mint
- Fresh blueberries – you could also use frozen blueberries if fresh are unavailable or out of season
- Simple syrup – you can make your own simple syrup by mixing a 1:1 water/sugar and simmering in a saucepan until completely dissolved. There are also sugar-free simple syrup options.
- Limes for lime juice – I recommend using limes for fresh-squeezed lime juice. If making a large batch of mojitos, you can use bottled lime juice (be sure to choose a good-quality juice.)
- Club soda – this is used to top off the drink and add a bit of sparkle to every sip.
- Coconut Rum – I used Malibu coconut rum. If you would prefer to use a standard white rum, go with a Bacardi or other good quality rum.
- Flake coconut for garnish

How do I make a mojito?
To make this delicious mojito, you’ll start with a cocktail shaker or mason jar. Add about 6-8 mint leaves, torn into pieces, along with fresh blueberries, and lime juice.
In the jar or shaker, you’ll muddle these together. To muddle means “to crush together.” You can use a muddling tool, or feel free to use the end of a wooden spoon. Muddling these ingredients together really brings out the flavors of the mint, blueberries and lime.
Next, pour in the rum and simple syrup over the muddled ingredients and add ice. Secure the lid on the jar or shaker, and shake vigorously.
Next, strain the cocktail into a glass, over ice and top with the club soda. Feel free to garnish with additional blueberries, coconut and a sprig of mint leaves.
You’ll have an amazing cocktail that is just as refreshing and delicious as it is pretty!
