Blueberry Cucumber and Mint Mojitos

Ingredients

  • 1.05 oz Blueberry honey syrup
  • 2 oz of Gin
  • Juice from half of a lemon
  • 5 fresh mint leaves
  • 5 slices of cucumber
  • 5 oz of soda water 

Optional Garnish

  • Sliced Cucumber
  • Mint
  • Blueberries
  • Lemon slices

Blueberry Honey Syrup

  • 4 cups fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup honey
  • Juice from half of a lemon

Step 1: Add 1/2 cup of water and the blueberries to the pot and apply low heat. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes. While the Blueberries are simmering you can crush them with a potato masher, or the back of a spoon, this will release the blueberries flavor faster.
Step 2: Strain the blueberry liquid through a fine mess strainer into a stainless steal or glass bowl. You are looking for about half a cup of liquid. If you have more than half a cup of liquid turn the heat back on and simmer until the extra liquid has evaporated.
Step 3: Add the ½ cup of honey into the blueberry liquid and stir to combine.  Chill the blueberry honey syrup before use.
