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.

- Next, muddle mint leaves, then combine with the blueberries.
- Stir rum, sugar, lime juice, and blueberry mixture.
