12 Months of Cocktails: July

Er mer gerd its July not long until my upcoming trips! Stay tuned for those posts. But anyway this cocktail I am excited about. I haven’t ever had a Mojito that I didn’t like and the fact that I can make this and enjoy it in the comfort of my house in my fuzzy slippers makes it even better. In the lead up to my trips I’ve been enjoying the comfort of my house a bit too much (with the execution of Disney on Ice). Its just been too cold and wet. Plus Im in between hairdressers appointments so my hair be looking like ratshit right now. No amount of styling can save it until bleach and scissors hit my hair. So enough rambling, this cocktail should be awesome, I always love how refreshing mojitos are – even the fruity ones.



10 Muddles Blueberries

2 Muddled Mint Leaves

3/4 Oz Lime Juice

1 Oz Simple Syrup

2 Oz Rum


Add 1 mint leaf, 1/2 of the blueberries, lime juice, syrup, rum and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously until the mixture is well chilled, about 20seconds. Pour into highball glass and garnish with remaining blueberries and mint leaf.


Making this cocktail was very straight forward and so delicious! I’d be lying if I said I only had one. It was sweet without being overly sweet. This is an example of why I love mojitos so much, they are a cocktail that can be sweet but not so sickly sweet that you feel sick from all of the sugar and sweetness overload.

This was supposed to be made the last week of the month as a kind of celebration. Unfortunately my body decided to be a total dick and make me sick and just as I was getting better make me sick AGAIN. Yep I looked like a pure delight. So making this cocktail was delayed due to all of the antibiotics I was on.
