Put a spin on a traditional mojito by incorporating summer berries for a refreshing and fruity flavor.
- 1 1/2 ounces blueberry or blackberry vodka
- simple syrup*
- 1 bunch fresh mint
- 1 bottle club soda or sparkling seltzer
- handful fresh blueberries or blackberries, for garnish
1: Combine mint leaves and a splash of simple syrup in a large pitcher.
2: Add vodka.
3: Mix together and chill in the refrigerator.
4: Once you remove the pitcher from the refrigerator, top with club soda or sparkling seltzer.
5: Garnish with blueberries or blackberries and mint sprigs.
*To make your simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan, then cook over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved completely. Add more flavor to the mix by adding chopped mint leaves before you heat. Once the sugar is dissolved, strain the mixture and refrigerate until you're ready to use.
