Ingredients

  • 35 fresh mint leaves , very roughly chopped (just barely!)
  • 1/3 cup simple syrup , or a little more to taste (2:1 ratio of sugar:water, see note)
  • 3-4 limes , quartered, depending on how tart you like it
  • 40 blueberries
  • 1-1/14 cup white rum
  • 3-4 cups soda water , to taste (about 3-4 cups)

Instructions

  • In a large bowl or pitcher, combine mint leaves and 1/3 cup simple syrup and muddle well 'til oils are released and very fragrant. Add limes and muddle 'til juiced. In a small bowl, muddle blueberries separately 'til mashed. Add blueberries to large bowl or pitcher, then add white rum (go for 1 1/4 cups if your crowd can hang! for a daytime event, I'd go with 1 cup). Stir to combine, and add about 2 cups soda water. Taste and add more simple syrup if you prefer a sweeter taste, and soda water until the mojito is light and bubbly enough. Serve with plenty of ice!

Notes

This recipe makes one batch, which serves about 6. Easily double or triple the ingredients for larger crowds!
To make simple syrup:
Combine 1 cup sugar with 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan over high heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, cover, and let cool. Makes a little more than a cup; reserve any remainder for another use.
