Looking for a fun summer cocktail that is simple to prepare and tastes SO GOOD? Wait until you try this refreshing blueberry mojito recipe that is super easy to make!

In the summertime, I’m always looking for a light, refreshing, and fruity drink to enjoy.

I love a good sangria like this peach sangria and this watermelon sangria.

But lately, I’ve been more interested in berry beverages like this strawberry lemonade.

Since New Jersey has the best climate for growing them, it’s no surprise I enjoy making dishes that feature anything berry.

With blueberries in season though and the heat of summer well underway, what better way to enjoy the beach, lake, porch, or patio than with a nice cool glass of blueberry mojito.

Have you had a mojito before?

I have and it’s not a drink I typically gravitate to. But this blueberry mojito recipe is SO GOOD.

It’s so refreshing and I know you will love it too!

Made with rum, this cocktail is simple to make and tastes unbelievable.

It’s the perfect cocktail to serve at a summer dinner party or barbecue but also makes a great beverage if you are just hanging out on the porch.

Cool off with this refreshing cocktail blend of juicy blueberries, rum, and tart limes.

What Is a Mojito Made Of?

Mojitos are a light, refreshing drink that is typically made with a blend of rum, simple syrup, lime juice, and fresh mint.

With blueberries in season right now, why not try this twist on the original with this tasty fruit?

It’s made with fresh blueberries, mint leaves, sugar, lime juice, and club soda.

And it’s really the perfect summer drink to enjoy in your favorite outdoor living space!

Is Mojito a Rum or Vodka?

Mojitos are generally made with rum, but you can also make a vodka mojito.

There are even recipes that swap out the rum for tequila.

While it’s all a matter of preference, swapping out the rum will lose the tropical flavor of the drink.

Personally, I prefer rum to vodka in a mojito. I’ve had it with vodka before and it’s just not the same.

But that said, enjoy it how you like!

What Type of Rum Is Best for a Mojito?

Light or white rum is best for making mojitos because it is a milder, lighter spirit.

Darker rums have deeper flavors because they are aged longer than lighter rums.

While it is recommended to go with a lighter rum, any rum you have on hand works for this easy blueberry mojito recipe.

What is a Blueberry Mojito Made Of?

To make a blueberry mojito, bash blueberries, mint, and some sugar together white rum and club soda.

Blueberries are wonderful in this recipe, but if you have different berries on hand, you can use them instead.

Raspberries, strawberries, or even blackberries would taste amazing too.

While mint is a staple ingredient, you could play around with other potent herbs like basil instead.

But to me, a mojito is not a mojito without the mint!

How to Make Mojitos For a Crowd

This blueberry mojitos recipe is easy to make in a pitcher.

Just muddle the blueberries and mint in the pitcher, then add the lime juice, sugar and rum.

If you plan on serving right away, add ice with club soda.

But if you prefer to this pitcher of mojitos beforehand, don’t add the ice and club soda until you are ready to serve so it doesn’t lose the bubbles.

Just be sure you find mint, because the herb makes the drink!

Ingredients to Make This Easy Recipe for Blueberry Mojito

There are not many ingredients needed to make this refreshing summer drink.

If you grow blueberries and mint like I do, it’s even easier to pull it all together!

Here’s what you need to make this blueberry mojito recipe.

Directions to Make Blueberry Mojito Recipe Easy

While most mojito recipes have you muddle the blueberries and mint separately, if you want to save some time, you can do it together.

But I’d start with the blueberries first and then add in the mint after.

  • Next, muddle mint leaves, then combine with the blueberries.
  • Stir rum, sugar, lime juice, and blueberry mixture.
  • Pour into glasses over ice with club soda.
  • Garnish with blueberries, mint and more lime (optional).

I prefer serving this recipe for blueberry mojitos in mason jars because they are casual and I have them on hand.

But feel free to use whatever glassware you prefer!
