thirsty tuesday: blueberry coconut mojitos

This week, I'm announcing a "thirsty" tuesday. With all this glorious summer heat and sun, I've been craving summery ice cold drinks - so here's one of my favourite ones. Fresh blueberries, mint leaves, coconut rum, and "ice, ice baby"! (excuse the craziness, it's the heat, I swear!).

This drink tastes even better than it looks. So go grab some fresh berries and mix away to chase away the summer heat!

[  i  n  g  r  e  d  i  e  n  t  s  ] 

1 + 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries
1 + 1/4 cup of water  (can add soda water instead too!)
sweetener to taste  (honey is lovely, but syrup and sugar are okay too)
4 oz coconut rum  (malibu's is sooo tasty!)
a handful of fresh mint leaves  (around 10-14 leaves)
1 tray of ice cubes  ("ice, ice baby...")

[  i  n  s  t  r  u  c  t  i  o  n  s  ]

1. Blend the first 3 ingredients together to make blueberry juice. 
2. Add in your fresh mint leaves and let the juice sit for around 10-15mins. so that it soaks up the minty flavour! 
3. Mix in your blueberry juice, tray of ice, and coconut rum and shake it up! 
4. Pour your delicious mojito into your cups, throw in some fresh blueberries, and garnish with more mint leaves to make it pretty :)

Make your way over to your porch, grab your summer read, kick back your feet, and enjoy!
