This blueberry mojito mocktail combines fresh blueberries, mint, and lime juice to create a light and fruity drink that’s totally refreshing! Make it with or without the booze!
Summer is finally, officially here! Let’s kick off our shoes and celebrate with a cool, refreshing blueberry mojito mocktail!
This is the fourth year in a row that I’ve created a signature cocktail to kick off the summer! The first was in 2015, when we created a crowd-pleasing cocktail to serve at our wedding reception. It was such a fun way to celebrate the flavors of the season that I’ve created a signature summer cocktail every year since, and this year is no exception. Since we’re expecting our first baby (A BOY!!) this September, this year’s drink is a mocktail (though I’ve included a note in the recipe for those of you looking for something a little stronger).
This blueberry mojito mocktail is everything I want in a summery drink. The fresh blueberries, muddled mint, and lime juice create a lightly sweet and super fruity blend. Packed with ice and topped with a splash of club soda, the drink is a little bit bubbly and 100% refreshing. It's a fun, fruity take on a classic mojito.

[recipe title="Blueberry Mojito Mocktail" servings="2"]
1 cup fresh blueberries (plus more for garnish)
1 T cold water
12 fresh mint leaves (plus more for garnish)
1 T granulated sugar
juice of 2 limes (about 2 T/1 oz. of juice) (plus lime wedges for garnish)
Add blueberries and water to a blender and purée. Set aside.
In a cocktail shaker, muddle mint leaves and sugar. Add blueberry purée and lime juice and shake well.
Pour mixture into two glasses. Fill the glasses with crushed ice and top with club soda. Stir gently. Garnish with extra blueberries, mint leaves, and lime wedges.
Note: If you'd like to make a blueberry mojito cocktail (rather than a mocktail), add 3 oz. white rum to the cocktail shaker when adding the lime juice.
