7 Simple Ingredients for a Refreshing Blueberry Mojito

There are not many ingredients needed to make this refreshing and easy 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.

  • 1.5 Cups Fresh Blueberries
  • 4 Ounces Rum
  • 10 Fresh Mint Leaves
  • 2 Teaspoons White Sugar

Easy Blueberry Mojito Directions: Muddle, Mix, and Enjoy!

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.

  • Muddle blueberries until smooth. I like to leave a few chunks for color.
  • 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).

Best Blueberry Mojito Variations: Easy Twists to Try

Blueberries are wonderful in this recipe, but if you have different berries on hand, you can use them instead. Raspberries, strawberries, or even blackberries are great ways to change up a blueberry mojito recipe.

And 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!

Here are some other blueberry mojito variations you should try!

Spicy Blueberry Mojito

  • Ingredients tweak: Add 1-2 thin slices of jalapeño to the muddling process with the mint and blueberries. Consider a tiny pinch of chili powder for extra heat.
  • Flavor note: Mention the contrast between the spice, the blueberry sweetness, and the lime’s tartness creates a uniquely exciting flavor profile.
  • Spice level suggestion: “Start with one jalapeño slice and taste before adding more – spice builds as it sits!”

Frozen Blueberry Mojito

  • Texture change: Explain this version is more like a slushy. Use frozen blueberries instead of fresh for the best consistency.
  • Make-ahead option: “Perfect for parties! Partially freeze the blueberry-lime-mint mixture in advance, then just add rum and a quick blend when ready to serve.”
  • Adjust sweetness: Suggest tasting the mixture after blending, as frozen fruit can make things less sweet. You may want to add a touch of simple syrup.

Blueberry Mojito Mocktail

  • Swap the spirit: Use a good quality sparkling water, club soda, or lemon-lime soda for the rum.
  • Visual appeal: Garnish is key here! A sprig of mint, lime wedge, and plenty of blueberries make it feel special.
  • Flavor boost option: Suggest muddling in a tiny bit of fresh ginger with the mint and berries for a delicious, non-alcoholic twist.

How to Serve a Blueberry Mojito

Classic mojitos are served in tall, highball glasses. Mason jars offer a rustic charm. For frozen versions, consider wide-mouth glasses or margarita glasses.

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!

Fresh mint sprigs, lime wedges, and extra blueberries are always a great garnish idea. Edible flowers add a special touch for fancy occasions. And if you want to spice things up? Add a slice of jalapeño.

Crushed ice is traditional for mojitos, but ice cubes will work too. For frozen variations, use less ice when blending for the best consistency.

What to Serve with Blueberry Mojitos

Blueberry mojitos work wonderfully with light appetizers, grilled chicken or fish, and summery desserts like fruit salad or sorbet. Here are a few recipes that pair well with this easy summer drink recipe.

    Blueberry Mojito Storage Tips for Best Flavor

    While blueberry mojitos are best enjoyed fresh, there are a few ways to prep ahead of time or store leftovers. Let’s dive into the best storage practices.

    Blueberry mojitos are best enjoyed immediately after mixing. The mint will start to wilt and the ice will dilute the drink over time.

    If you want to make it ahead of time, you can muddle the blueberries, lime juice, and mint with a bit of simple syrup (if using) and store it in the fridge for a few hours. Add the rum and soda/sparkling water just before serving.

    Should you have any leftovers, strain out any solids (berries, mint leaves) and store a pre-mixed batch in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. The flavors won’t be quite as vibrant the next day.

    Oh and you can freeze individual servings to enjoy as a slushy treat later. However, note that the texture will change significantly so you may or may not like that. I’d give it a whirl before serving it to others.

      Blueberry Mojito Recipe FAQs: Your Questions Answered

      Have a few more questions about this delicious blueberry mojito recipe? Check out my FAQ section below for answers on ingredients, variations, and more!

      Can you make this blueberry mojito recipe 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.

      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.

      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!
