Blueberry mojito

Blueberry mojito

Ingredients

1 lime, cut into quarters
15 fresh blueberries
Ice
1 1/4 oz. blueberry vodka
1 tbsp. simple syrup (recipe follows)
Splash soda water


Mojitos are classic Cuban drinks, traditionally made with rum. Here, Chef Jeff Rossman offers his own interpretation.

Directions

Muddle half of the lime and 10 blueberries together in a rocks glass. Add ice, vodka and simple syrup, then soda water. Garnish with remaining blueberries and a lime wedge.

To make simple syrup: Heat equal parts sugar and water to dissolve the sugar. Anything can be added to change the flavor profile (lemongrass, ginger, lime or orange zest, cinnamon, cloves, rosemary, basil, etc.).
