Barbeque Cocktail Recipe: Blueberry Mojito Recipe Easy

No summer BBQ is complete without a nice refreshing cocktail, am I right?

For this month’s supper club, I was in charge of the summer beverage.

And let me tell you, this blueberry mojito recipe is so light and refreshing, it’s the perfect summer BBQ drink!

Since it’s berry season here in my gardening zone 6a New Jersey climate, I chose to make a mojito recipe with blueberries.

You could easily change up the berries to make with strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries too.
