Blueberry Lemon and Cucumber Gin Mojitos #drinks #cocktails

I cherish an incredible mixed drink, so I knew my Blueberry Lemon and Cucumber Gin Mojitos would be an ideal fit! They consolidate sweet blueberries with invigorating lemon, cucumber and mint with a solid portion of gin and a sprinkle of pop water for simply the perfect measure of shimmer.

These pre-fall sipper are free of refined sugars and made with every common fixing — so whenever you're longing for a cooling summer mixed drink, entertain yourself with a crisp contort on the great mojito! Cheers to sharing the affection, to new writes and new companions!

It's clever — I haven't generally been a gin fan. Actually, I've just come to appreciate the flavor of gin this mid year. In the cooler, I discovered heaps of crisp lemons, alongside a beautiful bundle of mint and a few cucumbers. I quickly thought of a gin based, mojito-style mixed drink. My Blueberry Nectar Syrup includes so much enhance and a beautiful purple tone to these mixed drinks.

Ingredients
BLUEBERRY LEMON AND CUCUMBER GIN MOJITOS

  • 1.5 oz Blueberry Honey Syrup recipe to follow
  • 2 oz of gin
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 5 leaves fresh mint
  • 5 slices of cucumber
  • Soda water

OPTIONAL GARNISH

  • Sliced cucumbers
  • Sliced lemon
  • Blueberries
  • Sprig of mint
  • Edible flowers I used pansies

BLUEBERRY HONEY SYRUP

  • 4 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Juice from half a lemon


Instructions

  1. If you’re making floral ice cubes, begin by sourcing your flowers, washing them and dropping them into the ice cube trays to freeze. You really can’t mess this up — so experiment with different flower place- ments within each cube and have fun with it!
  2. Start on your Blueberry Honey Simple Syrup. Add blueberries and water to a medium sauce pan over low heat. The blueberries will begin to break down quickly — help them along by pressing them with a potato masher to aid in extracting the juices. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Strain the blueberry juice into a heatproof bowl, using the potato masher press the juice through the strainer. Reserve the juice for the Blueberry Honey Simple Syrup and discard the skins.
  4. Add the blueberry juice and honey back to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and allow to thicken for 10 minutes.
  5. Turn off the burner. Add the juice from half a lemon to your saucepan, stirring until incorporated. Allow your Blueberry Honey Simple Syrup to cool before using it in the Blueberry Lemon and Cucumber Gin Mojitos.
  6. Begin assembling your cocktail by adding lemon juice, mint and cucumber to a cocktail shaker and muddling them together with a pestle. Add Blueberry Honey Simple Syrup and a few ice cubes. Shake vigorously until the cocktail shaker becomes cold.
  7. Add the contents of the cocktail shaker to your glass along with your gin. Pour soda water overtop to fill your glass to the desired level.
  8. Garnish your Blueberry Lemon and Cucumber Gin Mojito with a slice of lemon and a few blueberries on a cocktail skewer.
  9. Add a sprig of mint, or a few more edible flowers and enjoy!
