Watch Aimee make this delicious mojito!
AIMEE'S BLUEBERRY-WATERMELON MOJITO
Makes 2 drinks
- 2 cups watermelon
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup mint
- 2 limes
- 2 shots of rum (I used Cruzan Aged Rum)
- Blueberry Simple Syrup (recipe below)
- club soda
Place 1/4 cup blueberries in the bottom of two tall glasses then add a couple of chunks of watermelon, then a few pieces of mint to each glass. Muddle 1 1/2 cups watermelon, 1 lime, quartered and mint in a separate glass or cocktail shaker. Add the rum and a splash of plain or blueberry simple syrup (when watermelon is this sweet you don't need much sugar!) Shake then pour into glasses and top with club soda. For a fun garnish, use a star-shaped cookie cutter and cut your watermelon into a star; garnish your glass with the star-shaped watermelon!
AIMEE'S BLUEBERRY SIMPLE SYRUP
- 2 cups of blueberries
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup of sugar
Bring blueberries, water and sugar to a boil in a small sauce pot, then remove from heat and allow to cool. Lightly mash the blueberries, then strain mixture into a mason jar.
