As the weather heats up and the work week winds down, I'm sure you're wondering what you could possibly do with those extra few hours tacked onto your weekend. As if summer Friday's aren't enough of an excuse to rewind and refresh with an adult beverage, we'll be bringing you irresistible warm-weather recipes to quite literally whet your whistle all summer long. Get the BBQ tongs ready and make sure the bar is stocked, because it's never too early to celebrate summer.
I've been on a bit of a mojito kick lately, and though nothing beats a traditional lime and mint mojito, it's always fun to play around with new ingredients. Because blueberries are in season for the summer (and they're full of beautifying antioxidants!), they're a great candidate for mojito muddling.
What You'll Need
4 oz Tequila Corrido Reposado
3 oz. Blue Agave Nectar
4 oz. Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
2 Handfuls Muddled Blueberries (about 20 berries)
4 mint leaves
1 oz. soda
Muddle blueberries with mint leaves. Put agave nectar, lime juice and tequila in a shaker with ice. Add blueberries and mint leaves to shaker, pour over ice. Finish with a touch of soda and a stick of sugar cane for garnish. Enjoy!
