Mojitos are probably my favorite alcoholic drinks of all time. I discovered them during my trip to Cabo with the Bear last year. Ever since, I have not been able to get enough of mojitos. I love the combination of lime and mint. It’s so darn refreshing!
Whenever I have a hard day at work, the Bear will whip up a quick mojito. He has become quite the mojito master. Since the Bear has never had a drink in his life (not kidding!), it makes me feel really special that he goes out of his way to make little ol’ me something. Not to drive the point into the ground, but it’s a pretty rare sight to see the Bear in the kitchen making anything. His idea of cooking is heating up a Hot Pocket, so typically I’m the one in the kitchen creating a healthy meal, while he cleans up after me. It’s a nice little arrangement that we made when we got married!
Anyways, back on topic… Alcohol! I don’t drink very often, so when I do it has to be something pretty spectacular. What’s more spectacular than blueberries, mint and limes?! Thus, the Blueberry Mojito was born!
- 1 lime
- ¼ cup blueberries
- 1 shot white rum
- 2 drops Stevia
- Small handful mint
- Sparkling water
- Squeeze lime into a tall glass.
- Add mint and blueberries and then mash with a muddler.
- Add Stevia and white rum. Fill the glass with ice.
- Top the glass off with sparkling water then mix all ingredients. Bottoms up!!!
The blueberries are a great source of antioxidents, and the Stevia helps to reduce calories. Alcohol has a lot of empty calories, so I will take all the help I can get when drinking! Because sometimes a girl just needs a drink!
