Wedding Drink Friday

Blueberry Mojito Royale


  • 1/3 cup blueberries (plus extra for a fancy blueberry swizzle stick)
  • 6-8 leaves fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon sugar in the raw (I’m into slightly tart cocktails, but feel free to add an extra teaspoon or two of sugar if you like a sweeter drink.)
  • 2½ tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 ounces light rum
  • Crushed ice
  • 2 ounces chilled prosecco or champagne


  1. Place the blueberries, mint leaves, sugar, and lime juice in a glass
  2. Using a muddling tool or wooden spoon, muddle the ingredients in the bottom of the glass until the blueberries have released their juices. No need to pulverize them, people, lightly crushed will do
  3. Fill the glass with crushed ice and pour the rum over. Give it a stir
  4. Top with chilled  champagne or prosecco and garnish with extra mint and blueberries if you’re feeling fancy
